Former Knicks guard Brandon Jennings, now with the Wizards, told reporters he prefers his new team's chemistry and system to what he saw with the Knicks.
The Knicks waived Jennings on Feb. 27 after spending less than a full season with the team.
"I'm in the same position I was in NY but just a better system for me personally and a team that actually plays together," Jennings said, according to Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic.
Jennings averaged 8.6 points and 4.9 assists per game with the Knicks.
Though he's been a starter on weaker teams during most of his career, Jennings is probably best suited as a sixth man. It'd be in this role that he'd be able to provide the most effective offensive spark. His explosiveness and boldness when it comes to scoring the basketball could be valuable for a contender in the right situation.
It's a shame that it didn't work out for the guard in New York. He truly embraced the Big Apple crowd and the fans seemed to appreciate his energy right back. Jennings' ability to score in bunches made him an exciting player to watch. After showing great early chemistry with the rest of the Knicks' second unit, the expectation was set for Jennings to be more of a table-setter for those around him.
That's simply not who he is. Had the Knicks been built more evenly with a well rounded backcourt, he would have been able to shine. Instead, employing two score-first point guards as a team's lead floor generals makes it tricky to find a balance.
