Bucks Sign Top Pick Jennings
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks have signed first-round pick Brandon Jennings to a multi-year contract.
Jennings was picked 10th overall in the 2009 NBA Draft. The 19-year-old skipped college and played in Italy last season.
Jennings played in the 2009 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas with the Bucks. He was Milwaukee's third-leading scorer, averaging 14.6 points per game, and helped the Bucks to a 4-1 record during Summer League play.
Jennings was the 2008 Naismith Player of the Year as a senior at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia and committed to play at Arizona. But he elected to turn pro and joined Lottomatica Virtus Roma. He averaged 5.5 points and 1.6 rebounds in 27 Italian League games last season.
