Jennings has averaged 8.6 points and a team-high 4.9 assists in 58 games, mostly as the backup to Derrick Rose. While he isn't the consistent scorer he was earlier in his career, Jennings has never been afraid to attack and will give the Wizards another offensive playmaker. "He's a guy that can pass the ball, he brings a lot of swag and can help us". While he has travelled around a lot in his eight-year National Basketball Association career, he also has earned over $38.6 million in the National Basketball Association and is still just 27 years old. Trey Burke, whom many thought would be cut to make room for Jennings, and rookie Tomas Satoransky have struggled at the position. It may take some time for this new group to gain chemistry, with Jennings and Bogdanovic recently added and Ian Mahinmi returning from injury, but the Wizards should have solid rotations put together by the time the playoffs come around. He then moved to the Pistons in a trade during the offseason where he went on to average double figures in points during his first two seasons in Detroit.
