Brandon Jennings To Hire Jeff Schwartz As Agent

February 4 2013 at 2:38pm CDT By Luke Adams

Earlier today, we heard that Brandon Jennings had parted ways with agent Bill Duffy. Now, Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the Bucks guard will be represented by Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports Management. Jennings will sign with Schwartz once the 10-day waiting period for switching agents expires, according to Berger.

Schwartz is known for being a proponent of the added endorsement income and opportunities that big-market cities can provide, writes Berger, noting that Jennings' decision "could be ominous for the Bucks."

Of course, even if Jennings would prefer to sign with a team besides Milwaukee this summer, he'll be a restricted free agent, so the Bucks will have a chance to match any offer sheet he signs. Last summer, we saw players like Eric Gordon and Nicolas Batum express a desire to switch teams, only to have their offer sheets matched by the Hornets and Trail Blazers, respectively.

Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Blake Griffin, Tyson Chandler, and Arron Afflalo are among the other notable NBA players represented by Excel.
