According to Ken Berger of CBS Sports, Mikwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings, who is heading into restricted free-agency in a matter of three to four months, decided to switch agents. Now that he’s let go of Billy Duffy of BDA Sports Management, he’s waiting until the NBA’s mandatory 10-day waiting period subsides to hire Jeff Schwartz of Excel.
While this normally wouldn’t be too newsworthy, it’s worth noting that Schwartz has a reputation of valuing the added income that comes from playing on a large-market team. It’s also worth noting that Milwaukee is indeed, not one of those markets.
Jennings, Duffy and Milwaukee’s front office couldn’t come to an agreement this past fall regarding a contract extension, which means that the third-year point guard is set to be a restricted free agent this summer. He’s been averaging over 18 points and 6 assists for the seventh-seeded Bucks this season.
It’s safe to say that Schwartz, also the representative of Kevin Love, has big plans for the two. Of course, considering the fact that any offer given to Jennings can be matched, no movement is guaranteed.
