• Brandon Jennings: signed a one-year, $5 million contract

Brandon Jennings made headlines recently when he tweeted out that he would rather have a career like 7-time NBA champion and role player Robert Horry than ringless Hall of Famer Reggie Miller.

Jennings wasn’t trying to insult Miller he just wanted to make it clear that he came to New York to win. Much like Derrick Rose, he believes in this team.

He could come in and have a complete career turnaround with a new team, or things could implode. Jennings is hard to predict.


His poor shot selection and inconsistency on offense are rivaled only by his James Harden-like attitude on defense that Knicks’ fans will grow to despise. Jennings is a volume shooter, averaging 15.8 shots and 17.4 points per game for his career.

The guy needs the ball in his hands to be remotely effective.

Then he has moments of greatness that explain why he was the No. 1 overall high school recruit in the country from the legendary Oak Hill Academy.

To describe Brandon Jennings in one word: Infuriating. Or he was as a starter anyway. Hopefully, as a reserve with fewer minutes, he can make fewer mistakes.

Either way in this market when D.J. Augustin is getting $29 million, the Knicks got a steal with Jennings. The one-year deal is great for both sides.
