Lottomatica Roma announced Brandon Jennings
Lottomatica Roma announced Brandon Jennings via their official website. The former high-school player will be arriving shortly in Italy to sign his contract with Roma. Roma was the first team to show interest in the young player according to his agent Sonny Vacaro and there is an option for the player to play in the NBA if he can secure a contract later on.
Jennings is one of the best point-guard prospects of his year but he decided to take the leap into Europe and skip college entirely. The 1.85 point guard averaged 35.5 points per game for Oak Hill Academy this season and totaled a school-record 1.312 points.
