The Milwaukee Bucks have waived point guard Brandon Jennings, according to multiple reports.
The Bucks had signed Jennings to a two-year, non-guaranteed contract last season after giving him two 10-day deals.

The 28-year-old previous had a stint with the for Shanxi Zhongyu in the Chinese Basketball Association before rejoining the Bucks last season. Jennings has struggled to provide consistent production but has proven to be a scoring asset off the bench that can create his own shot.
He has a chance to still latch onto another NBA team this summer as a training camp invitee where he could vie for playing time with eyes toward grab one of the 15 regular-season roster spots. There may also be opportunities presented to him to play overseas that he could use to reignite his career.
