A former league executive gave an insightful reason why international players—and perhaps examples such as Brandon Jennings and Emmanuel Mudiay—are better served playing overseas than in the D-League: The high cost of traveling invariably prompts owners to send their higher-echelon executives to see those players, while scouts and lower-rung executives are more apt to get the Santa Cruz itinerary. Who the top decision-maker has seen live, or most often, can tip the scales when it comes to pre-draft skull sessions. Bleacher Report

MLive: Other than basketball, what was the coolest part about playing in Italy that year? Jennings: Just being able to travel, going to other countries. At that time, I was still only 18 so to be able to able to go to the Spanish Steps, go to the Coliseum. I did my first national commercial ever in Italy. So it was dope. MLive: What was the coolest sight you saw? Jennings: The Coliseum. I was out there all day with Under Armor doing a commercial so I was just soaking all that in. Booth Newspapers

MLive: If they made a movie about your life, who would star in it? Jennings: If they made a movie about my life who would star in it? Denzel Washington would probably be a person that stars in it. My girlfriend in the movie would probably be Halle Berry. And who would be me? I'll just play myself. MLive: Twenty years from now, what do you see yourself doing? Jennings: I see myself retired, becoming a businessman, making money outside of basketball and just living. I just want to be left alone, chilling. Smoking my cigars and just chilling.

Van Gundy likes to quiz his players during shoot arounds and whereas Jennings was once silent he now frequently speaks up and answers the coach's questions. "Stan wants me to talk more," Jennings said. "The fact that this is my fifth or sixth year, it's time for me to start talking and be that leader. Also, I'm still trying to learn the game of basketball. "He's really teaching and he joked one day, said 'I think after basketball you might be a coach.' I said, 'No, I'm cool in that.' I'm just trying to learn and learn from him and what he thinks in terms of basketball." Booth Newspapers

Van Gundy, after a chunk of games that has his team at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, paying an early deposit with the 76ers for a good seat at next May's draft lottery, has begun to realize that balance is probably more delicate than his dual titles as coach and president of basketball operations. "I don't think it's gonna be overnight," Van Gundy said. "I'd like it to be. Tom would like it to be, but I don't think it's gonna be an overnight thing." "Last night it was an hour and a half, just talking about our roster and where we're headed and the whole thing. What I feel good about, what I don't like. It was two days of texts." Detroit News

How about Brandon Jennings, the league’s worst shooting point guard the last few years, now blaming Stan Van Gundy in comments to Detroit media: "If you ask the question about why we're not making shots, we don't shoot. We don't shoot in practice. We haven't really had a chance to work on our games or anything. When we do have shootarounds, we're not able to get up shots like we should. I just think if you're going to have shootaround in the morning, I think it's good that you get loose and you should work on shots that you're going to take in the game. Even before, after practice, we've got to start getting in the gym, just working on our game more." Who’s stopping him? NBA.com

Brandon Jennings didn't have the greatest of weeks but the Detroit Pistons point guard said Friday that his team's errant shooting may be reparable with repetitions. "If you ask the question about why we're not making shots, we don't shoot," Jennings said after Friday's 99-89 loss to the Atlanta Hawks. "We don't shoot in practice. We haven't really had a chance to work on our games or anything. When we do have shootarounds, we're not able to get up shots like we should." Booth Newspapers
