Bucks guard Brandon Jennings will be a restricted free agent this summer and Milwaukee will have the right to match any offer. But Jennings also has the right under the collective bargaining agreement to take the Bucks' qualifying offer and play with the team for one more season (at $4.5 million) before becoming an unrestricted free agent the following year. Jennings hinted to Yahoo Sports on Friday that he might consider that option. But would the Bucks want an unhappy player in that situation? If he takes the qualifying offer, Jennings told Yahoo: "If I take the qualifying offer and become a (unrestricted) free agent there is no way I am coming back. There is no way."
Jennings could use qualifying offer as leverage
