Milwaukee Bucks Pick Up Brandon Jennings, Larry Sanders Options

Zach HerringCorrespondent IIJune 30, 2011

The Milwaukee Bucks announced they will exercise the fourth-year contract option on guard Brandon Jennings and the third-year option on power forward Larry Sanders.

Jennings played 63 games last season for Milwaukee, averaging 16.2 points, 4.8 assists and 3.7 rebounds. Jennings recorded his first career triple-double with 20 points, 10 assists, and 10 rebounds against the Charlotte Bobcats. As you know, Jennings became the second player to have a 50-plus scoring game and a triple-double in his first 100 NBA games.

The other? Elgin Baylor.

Sanders played in 60 games last season for Milwaukee. As a rookie, he averaged 4.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks. Sanders’ best game of the season came against Denver, when he scored 14 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and blocked a total of eight shots. Sanders also ranked fifth in the league in blocks per 48 minutes, with 3.96.

Both of these moves are great for the Bucks. With a few offseason moves and a solid draft, the Bucks will look to make a 2011-2012 playoff push.
