Has Brandon Jennings stock dropped? Cos i can recall many people, including myself, had him going to the Warriors at #7. Now alot of people have him going #14 or #15. I can guarantee you hes going top 10 for sure. Even Chad Ford, the ESPN guru for the NBA Draft, doesnt have Brandon Jennings on his top 10 big board, which is ridiculous. BJ's potential is skies the limit.
It is stupid that Jennings stock have dropped so low but unless he does individual workouts he will get drafted low but I will say this he is top 5 talent.
I said this a while ago and got crucified. Either he has a guarantee from a team already or he's very confident about private workouts. He is walking a very thin line but thats not new for him. I think he has the best potential to be a superstar in this draft but he isnt helping his cause. Unless he has a deal already, I see him going 8-18. Has the talent of the top 3 but alot of other PG's are fresh in GM's minds.
The potential contenders and the teams that need a point guard (Atlanta, Philly) are praying the lesser teams are dumb enough to let Jennings fall out of the the top 6. I guarantee you that
I see them looking for a more NBA ready player like Maynor. I'm not sure Jennings is ready to contribute just yet.
along with Flynn, and Holiday. I would pay to watch this.
I think He doesn't go past 6. Minnesota will take a long hard look at Jennings/Flynn/Curry. I think they take the gamble on Jennings over the bunch. Taking Curry would be a terrible decision for a franchise that already had a tweaner shooting guard. I'm one of the few who still thinks Curry isn't a point guard in this league.
I agree he isnt a PG but Foye is a tweener too. I think he could work well with Foye because they need a shooter and they can share PG responsibilities, letting the other play off the ball. I think Jennings is slipping because he has been out of sight, out of mind for a while and guys like Curry, Flynn, and Holiday are shooting up the boards. Personally I would take Jennings but I see NBA GM's being scared off by his disappointing Euro-season and failure to show up to Eurocamp.
Yea. Its unfair but Jennings stock if falling because he didnt go to the combine and alot of scouts dont have any film on him.
Jennings = Telfair. Unless you would draft Telfair in the top 10 why draft Jennings? They're the same player. Jennings has bust written all over him.
Similar NBA readiness but Jenning has much better physical tools.
