Over the weekend, the New York Daily News reported mutual interest between Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings and the Dallas Mavericks. Now, Jennings has acknowledged his admiration for the Mavs' roster and owner Mark Cuban, and his willingness to play in Dallas, in an interview with Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News:

“Yeah, of course,” Jennings said when asked if he could see himself fitting in Dallas. “You’ve got Dirk Nowitzki, you’ve got O.J. Mayo, Elton Brand, Chris Kaman.

“Who wouldn’t want to play in an environment like this every night? You’ve got an owner who’s so into his team and everything like that. Every time you see the Mavs, you see [Cuban] cheering or going crazy. They won a championship. They’re about winning.”

Jennings is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, meaning the Bucks will have the ability to match any offer the fourth-year guard signs. He is averaging 18.9 PPG, 3.3 RPG, and 6.1 APG this season.
