Get more details on Brandon Jennings on the flip…
The news is hot off the press that Brandon Jennings has agreed to sign with the New York Knicks. Jennings finished this past season with the Orlando Magic after returning from a torn Achilles.
Newsday reporter Al Iannazzone:
“Can confirm that the Knicks have reached an agreement with Brandon Jennings. @ESPNSteinLine had it first.”
The New York Knicks have agreed to terms with free-agent point guard Brandon Jennings, sources told ESPN’s Marc Stein.
The Orlando Magic acquired Jennings and forward Ersan Ilyasova in a February trade in which they sent forward Tobias Harris to the Detroit Pistons as part of a larger plan to make a major push this summer for free agents.
Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said in April the team hoped to add veterans during the offseason, and the Magic could have generated up to $46 million in cap space for July by waiving Ilyasova and renouncing its cap hold on Jennings along with other free agents.
A six-year veteran, Jennings flashed brilliance in Milwaukee before enduring injury-riddled stints with the Pistons and Magic. He suffered a torn left Achilles in January 2015, and in the last half of the 2015-16 season with the Magic, he produced 20 points or more on three occasions, as well as a pair of double-digit assist outings.
