What will likely make Van Gundy pull out the remainder of his hair follicles is Jennings' shot selection, and one can certainly argue that a bad shot should be registered as a turnover. "The issues with him are defensively and his shooting percentage," Van Gundy said. "It's a function of one or two shots a game where he doesn't get on balance and sort of throws up a careless one. You just give away possessions, it's hard to get to a good percentage because you're not gonna shoot 65 percent on the shots where you really are (taking them)." Detroit News

"He's gotta be more consistent and we'll show him some film where we think he's giving away shots and not really balancing up," Van Gundy said. "Overall we're really happy. He's playing really hard. "He's off balance. Brendan (Malone, assistant coach) and I both watched him work out several times this summer. When he balances up, he can shoot the ball, there's no question." Detroit News

Twenty-five extra pounds? Check…wait, that wasn’t here last season “I’m about 185, 190 on my good days,” said Jennings, noticeably thicker but still wiry. Training camp doesn’t begin until the first day of October but Jennings and his other 14 teammates have all been at The Palace for a few weeks, per new coach/president Stan Van Gundy’s request. “Usually guys come in and you don’t see them until media day,” Jennings said. “It’s good, we’ve been together for three weeks strong, preparing for the season.” Detroit News

Brandon Jennings put on a show at the Drew League in LA this weekend, dropping 57 points and dishing out some pretty sweet assists. After all was said and done, his team won 107-84, and the point guard took off his jersey and laid it in the middle of the court. beyondthebuzzer.com

One of Loyer's bigger challenges internally was keeping point guard Brandon Jennings engaged after Cheeks was fired. Jennings regarded Cheeks as a father figure and as he failed to adapt after the change, Loyer found himself turning more to backup Will Bynum, one of several Pistons who later ended the season injured.

So let Gigi Datome take some of it. And Tony Mitchell. And Peyton Siva, who already has been playing increased minutes at point guard and saw extensive playing time in two wins before the debacle here. Jennings said it's time for more. "I think, at this point, it's important that we play the young guys," he said after missing his first 10 field-goal attempts. "Let the young guys get some time, let them see what it is to play 35 minutes a night in the NBA." Booth Newspapers

“I think anybody, and it’s just in general, the highest-paid player on the team and supposed to be the franchise, they pay you like that, they expect you to produce like that,” said point guard Brandon Jennings, who also arrived in Detroit last summer. “That’s just like (Pacers forward) Paul George, he got 90 (million dollars). If he came in and didn’t live up to it, how much would people be talking about him? If you’re that high-paid player, you gotta be ready every night. Every night. You can’t have no days off. Nobody cares, nobody wants to hear that.” Detroit News

Are you a Brandon Jennings fan? Well, there’s an app for that. Available for free at Apple’s App Store, it’s called “BRANDed.” The app features Jennings’ tastes in music, fashion and news about Jennings. The idea came about last summer and is a partnership between Jennings and Excel Sports Management, the agency founded by Jennings’ representative, Jeff Schwartz. “It was just an idea of trying to help people get their stories out. It’s a positive app, there’s nothing negative,” Jennings said. “I’m not looking to do anything negative. I’m just looking to help people push their product or whatever they have going on. “It’s things I think are tight, it’s things I think are dope that’s coming out.” Detroit Free Press

Brandon Jennings, who was 19 when he was the first-round pick of the Milwaukee Bucks in 2009, doesn’t get it. He especially doesn’t understand why ex-players would be for it. “The only reason I won’t agree with that is you see guys who have talked about this and say they agree,” Jennings said. “Every guy who kind of said something is kind of on they way out in the league, so why you hating on the next young kid coming up anyway? “I just feel like if a kid’s ready, he’s ready to go — why two years? Then if I’m a kid that’s talented and you expect me to go to college and eat McDonalds’s all the time. I’m not rolling.” Detroit Free Press

Jennings made it clear Friday he doesn't like his cards. It would be "kind of embarrassing" to miss the playoffs with the retooled roster this season, he said, and the dismissal of Cheeks after 50 games continues to affect him more than his teammates, he acknowledged. "To be honest, I don't think the team is probably tripping," about the Cheeks firing, Jennings said. "I feel like it's still the same. It's still the same. Not much has really changed, if you asked me." Booth Newspapers
