I don't know all that went into Brandon Jennings' decision to drop BDA for Excel as his representation, but it's
shocking in light of all that it appeared BDA did for him -- a deal in Italy that paid him $500,000 rather than going to college for a year, being drafted 10th even though he didn't play all that well overseas and landing one of the top five shoe deals for point guards with Under Armour. Whispers are that not making the All-Star team and anxiety about being one of the few guards in his class not to lock up an extension last summer drove Jennings' decision. That's equally stunning, if true, since Excel (Jeff Schwartz) is sure to use the same leverage BDA (Bill Duffy) would have this summer with Milwaukee -- Monta Ellis potentially opting out of his deal -- to get something commensurate to what Steph Curry and Jrue Holiday got, which, for Jennings' body of work, would be generous.
