Brandon Jennings Agrees to Sign with Wizards After Clearing Waivers

Once a promising player in Milwaukee, where he averaged over 19 points during the 2011-12 season, Jennings still has some flashes of great play, including a 32-point game in December for NY. The Wizards will have to clear a roster spot to accommodate the veteran point guard, who was waived by the Knicks earlier this week.

ESPN.com's Chris Haynes first reported Jennings reached a verbal agreement with the Wizards for the rest of this season. Teams still can claim Jennings off waivers until 5 p.m. EST today, but if no one does, as expected, the guard will join his 6th team in his National Basketball Association career and look to re-start in Washington, DC. In this case, Jennings' team of choice is the Washington Wizards.

Washington is Jennings' fifth team in seven-plus seasons in the league.

The offensive duties are mostly shared by the Wizards' front court duo of John Wall and Bradley Beal.




A three-guard lineup featuring Wall, Beal and Jennings is also a possibility to provide more floor spacing and options at the offensive end of the floor.

Jennings shoots just 38 percent from the field.
