Jennings will now be available on waivers and the 28-year old recently discussed his goal of returning to the NBA.
“That’s something I will probably have to take anyways with the circumstances that I’m in,” Jennings said, according to Alberto De Roa of HoopsHype. “That definitely would be something that I would be down for, of course. I’m 28, I want to play until I’m 35. I’m fully healthy from my Achilles injury and things like that. So I just want the opportunity.”
Jennings had averaged 16.6 PPG in over 400 career regular season games prior to suffering a torn Achilles back in January 2015.
After the injury he looked like a completely different player as he bounced around the NBA, averaging only 7.0 ppg, a far cry to his normal performance level.
