Differing, possibly high-priced developments in Bucks/Jennings situation
MILWAUKEE - A number of pieces seem to be moving in the Brandon Jennings free agency situation with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Are the Bucks getting close to signing him to a long-term deal, as the Racine Journal Times' Gery Woelfel reports?

Or are they truly looking to produce a sign-and-trade to move him, as ESPN's Marc Stein discusses?
Jennings is a restricted free agent. He could sign a one-year tender offer from the Bucks which would let the team match any other free-agent offer, but let him be an unrestricted free agent next year.
Also, he could sign a long-term deal with the Bucks.
Is Jennings worth $11 million to keep long term? Would Jeff Teague in Milwaukee with Larry Drew, as Stein suggests, be the better move?
Time will tell, as will the seemingly never-ending speculation in a wild NBA free agent market. Stay tuned.
