Brandon Jennings or Jeff Teague?
Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond has been a very busy man this off-season. After a sub-500 season in which the Bucks were swept in the playoffs by the eventual champion Miami Heat, Hammond has searched for ways to retool his team.
Gone are JJ Redick, Mike Dunleavy, Monta Ellis and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. Soon to be gone are Samuel Dalembert, Drew Gooden and Joel Przybilla. In are rookies Giannis Antetokoumpo, Nate Wolters, OJ Mayo, Carlos Delfino and Zaza Pachulia.
But there is still one major decision Hammond needs to make. He needs to sign a starting point guard. The Bucks have made Brandon Jennings (a restricted free agent) a one year qualifying offer of just over $4 million. Jennings, according to several reports, is seeking a multi-year deal worth about $12 million per season. Jennings number may come down a bit given there has been little reported interest from around the league.
Rumors have swirled suggesting the Bucks are working on a sign-and-trade with the Atlanta Hawks that would ultimately send Jennings to the Hawks for Jeff Teague. Teague, 25, had his best season as a pro last season under Head Coach Larry Drew. Teague was selected 9 spots behind Jennings in the 2009 draft.
