Bucks guard Brandon Jennings' near triple-double performance vs. Grizzlies

The Milwaukee Bucks will reportedly sign veteran guard Brandon Jennings to a 10-day contract Saturday, according to Marc J. Spears of ESPN's The Undefeated.

His best campaign came in 2011-12 when he put up 19.1 points, 5.5 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game for the Bucks.

Now that he's secured a 10-day contract with the Bucks, Jennings is looking to do what he can to help the team out as they hit the final stretch run in their season, a proposition that was helped by his month-long stay with the team's affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd.

Jennings, 28, was the 10th overall pick of the Bucks back in 2009. Throughout his eight-year career, Jennings jumped from team-to-team (Milwaukee, Detroit, Orlando, New York and Washington) and also played for Shanxi Zhongyu in the Chinese CBA.

The Milwaukee Bucks have assigned forward D.J. Wilson to the Wisconsin Herd of the National Basketball Association G League.

In 541 career National Basketball Association contests, the 28-year-old owns per-game averages of 14.3 points, 5.7 assists and 3.0 rebounds.

Jennings averaged 21.4 points, 7.6 assists and 4.7 rebounds per contest in G League action. He was touted as the next franchise player after putting on a superb rookie season, most notably a 55-point explosion on November 14, 2009 against the Warriors.

The Bucks are now eighth in the Eastern Conference - a tough spot for any team vying for a playoff spot.
