The 2011 NBA Draft Combine is fully underway in Chicago and of course can be a great source of rumors heading into the NBA Draft.
One of the more interesting rumors (via cleveland.com) is that the Milwaukee Bucks might be open to trading their point guard Brendon Jennings.
Jennings averaged 16.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 4.8 assists this past season for Milwaukee. He shot 39% from the field, 80% from the free throw line, 32% from the three point line in 34.4 minutes.
He is a young player, capable of putting up points and could blossom into one of the best point guards in the NBA. Not only does his on the court game prove tempting for a team interested in making a trade, he is due $2,493,720.00 next season with the Bucks hold a team option in 2012-2013 season.
However, trading Jennings might put Milwaukee in a bind at the point guard position. Currently, the Bucks have Earl Boykins, and Keyon Dooling and unless another team offers Milwaukee a nice deal, with the NBA being dominated by point guards, perhaps Milwaukee might want to reconsider trading Jennings.
Another aspect is that should the Bucks deal Jennings, it might be to move up in the upcoming draft. Currently, Milwaukee holds the 10th pick in the 2011 draft.
