NBA trade rumors 2015: Detroit Pistons’ Brandon Jennings may be bagged by Knicks, updates
NBA trade rumors continue unabated. The one player who seems to be in huge demand right now is Brandon Jennings. The Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings is not just a great player, he is a performer and has helped his side win many crucial matches.
The 26-year old player comes with impeccable background and performances. Jennings was a highly acclaimed high school player; he won all major player of the year awards in his senior year as he averaged 32.7 points and 7.4 assists per game. His impressive performance has continued in his professional avatar as well.
There are reasons to believe that the New York Knicks are currently focusing on winning as much as they can and they are taking one game at a time. The NBA trade rumors are getting stronger with each passing day. So far, the rumors have been connected to trades for multiple guards around the league and even Dwight Howard. Now, it has surfaced that Knicks have serious interest in Brandon Jennings of the Detroit Pistons.
In a report the Real GM says that this is more than just rumors and that the Knicks are looking at trading for Jennings. It is notable that Jennings recently returned to the court after rupturing his left Achilles tendon almost a year ago. He has an expiring contract which could free up some money before its get too late. On the other hand, the Pistons just signed Reggie Jackson to a five-year deal worth $80 million, and he is performing well so far. That makes Jennings expendable, and the New York Knicks desperately need a good point guard.
On the other hand NBC Sports in a report said that the head coach Stan Van Gundy was recently asked if Jennings could ever be a starting point guard again after his injury and he said: “Oh yeah, I don’t think there is any doubt. Brandon is coming back well off of the injury and he’s a guy who just absolutely loves to play, loves to be in the gym. He’s still young, he’s still 26. I don’t think there’s any doubt he’ll be a starting point guard in this league again.” There is no denying the fact that he has a long and great career ahead.
