Brandon Jennings, who has yet to play this season, is officially practicing with the Pistons, but it is still too early to know when he will appear in a game, Terry Foster of the Detroit News relays. Hoops Rumors’ Dana Gauruder recently profiled Jennings as a trade candidate because Jennings has an expiring contract at $8,344,497.
“We had one practice last week,” Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said, per Foster. “He got up and down and he brought good energy to the practice. We haven’t seen him in a week and when we do see him it is 15 minutes of action. It is really tough to gauge him in the little bit of time we see him. Right now it is once a week in short bursts.”

Porzingis, who was sensational before the Knicks’ recent road trip was held scoreless Saturday for the first time. “A couple of bad games, it happens to all of us. Not only rookies. I’m just looking forward to the next game,” Porzingis said, per Kerber. “So ups and downs, obviously this is my rookie season.”
