NBA free agency is underway

NBA free agency is officially underway and the Milwaukee Bucks say they’ll put the full court press on point guard Brandon Jennings to return to the team.

Jennings is a restricted free agent and the Bucks have made a $4.3-million qualifying offer to Jennings last week to retain the right to match any offer from another NBA team.

General Manager John Hammond has said the Bucks plan to sign the 23-year old Jennings to a long-term contract or match any offer if an agreement can’t be reached.

Free agent shooting guard J.J. Redick isn’t expected to return to the Bucks.
