Brandon Jennings Unavailable Via Trade

4:01pm: A source tells Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld definitively that Jennings is unavailable and won't be dealt this week.

7:57am:'s Sam Amick reported yesterday that Brandon Jennings was available "for the right price," and HoopsWorld reports that if Andrew Bogut is dealt, Milwaukee may move Jennings next. However, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports (Twitter link) hears from a source close to the situation that the Bucks don't intend to trade the 22-year-old.

Jennings created a bit of a stir last month when he told he intended to explore all his options at the end of his rookie contract, and that he'd been doing his homework on big markets. According to Amick, the comments irked some Bucks officials. The timing was particularly odd, since the third-year guard wouldn't be eligible for unrestricted free agency until, at the very earliest, the summer of 2014.

Despite Jennings' questionable PR tactics and his underwhelming .386 career FG%, he represents one of the Bucks' strongest assets, with an extremely affordable $2.49MM cap figure this year and $3.18MM for 2012/13. Even if the Bucks were considering moving the former tenth overall pick, it would take a pretty impressive package to pry him from Milwaukee.
