Report: Brandon Jennings to sign 10-day contract with Milwaukee Bucks

Published

on

The Milwaukee Bucks are expected to sign guard Brandon Jennings to a 10-day contract, reports Marc Spears of ESPN’s The Undefeated.

Jennings was drafted by the Bucks with the No. 10 pick of the 2009 NBA draft and played his first four NBA seasons in Milwaukee. After playing in China earlier this season, Jennings joined the Bucks’ G League affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd, on Feb. 13. Jennings was averaging 21.4 points, 7.6 assists and 4.7 rebounds with the Herd in the G League.

The Bucks opened up a roster spot by requesting waivers for injured forward Mirza Teletovic on Saturday. Jennings is eligible for the Bucks’ playoff roster since he was not on an NBA roster on March 1.

According to Spears, Jennings plans to practice with the Bucks on Sunday and join the team against the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday (8 ET, NBA League Pass).

Jennings told Spears he is, “blessed and grateful for a second chance coming from a franchise where I started.”

The Bucks (35-31) hold the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference with 16 games remaining in the regular season.

Published

Free agent forward Furkan Korkmaz has agreed to a two-year contract to return to the Philadelphia 76ers, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Free agent forward Furkan Korkmaz has agreed to a two-year contract to return to the Philadelphia 76ers, agent Mike Lindeman of Excel Sports tells ESPN.

Korkmaz, 21, brings back a rotational forward with the ability to spread the floor with his shooting. The loss of JJ Redick in free agency – and Kyle Korver’s decision to choose Milwaukee over Philadelphia – brought some increased urgency to keep Korkmaz on the Sixers roster.

 The 21-year-old Korkmaz, who was the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, averaged 5.8 points and 2.2 rebounds in 14.1 minutes last season.

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love is the latest player expected to withdraw from Team USA’s training camp for the FIBA World Cup, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

This news comes just one day after Damian Lillard reportedly withdrew from the World Cup. Love, who played in just 22 games last season because of a shoulder injury, averaged 17.0 points and 10.9 rebounds in 2018-19.

During the previous two weeks, James Harden, Anthony Davis, Eric Gordon, Zion Williamson and CJ McCollum reportedly decided not to compete in the World Cup this year.

Although the guard ranks will be somewhat depleted of NBA stars, Team USA continues to have a deep pool of players available.
