After completely missing an open layup attempt against the Dallas Mavericks a few nights ago, it’s safe to say Pistons fans have had enough of Jennings.

From a numbers standpoint, Jennings is not having that bad of a season – 16 points per game and eight assist per game – but watching him play will drive you insane.  The problem with Jennings has been consistency, yes, he is a better passer since joining Detroit in 2013 but, his shooting numbers and erratic play have not changed since his Milwaukee days.

So, what makes Jennings attractive to other teams, if he’s an erratic point guard? For starters, Jennings has one-year $8 million remaining on his contract after this year, which is relatively reasonable.

As we have seen at times in Detroit, Jennings can efficiently run an offense and can certainly create his own shot and get good looks for his teammates.  Also, he’s only 25 and has a good upside, just not under Van Gundy or in Detroit.

There have been rumors of the Los Angeles Lakers expressing interest in Jennings, reportedly offering guard Jeremy Lin. While “Linsanity” has been dead for a few years, there are a ton of people would pay top dollar to see a team with Brandon Jennings, Kobe Bryant and Swaggy P trying to out shoot each other.
