- The sign and trade orchestrated by Detroit and Milwaukee was a move that some saw as a potential deal earlier this month, but the price was too steep early on in Free Agency. Jennings wanted a deal that would fetch him from $10-$12 million a season from the Bucks, but then Milwaukee tried to sign Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague. When the Hawks matched the 4-year offer from the Bucks, Jennings days in Milwaukee seemed numbered.

Before the talks began on the Piston front, Jennings was set to sign the qualifying offer from the Bucks that was a 0ne-year deal worth $4.5 million, making him an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2014.

The deal negotiated out by Jennings and his agent and the Piston staff, has him set to make $8.3 million a season over his 3-year deal. At $25 million over three years, this was a great bargain for the special player that Brandon is.
