According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the New York Knicks and point guard Brandon Jennings have decided to part ways.

New York Knicks point guard Brandon Jennings signed a sweetheart deal (one-year, $5 million) this summer to finally play for the team that passed on him in the 2009 NBA Draft.

Eight months later, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported that Jennings was waived to make room D-league star Chasson Randle.

Jennings talked trash during the preseason and was vocal about the obvious flaws in New York’s defense. He compared himself (perhaps a little prematurely) and Joakim Noah to John Starks and Anthony Mason. The dude bought into the New York life.

  1. Thank God! Jennings use to be a true scorer and shooter, but all has gone down hill. Can’t play defense and poor play making skills. Chasson Randle should have been on the roster from day 1. Chasson good playmaking, ball handling, and shoot the 3 well, and plays defense.
