“I knew nothing,” Jennings said. “When they said they were gonna pick him I didn’t know who he was at all. But when they said he could run the floor and block shots, it was exactly what we need.”

Jennings was in Las Vegas to watch his new teammates, hoping to get some run in with Sanders, the future recipient of his passes.

“The coaches weren’t having it,” Jennings said with a laugh. “I’m really excited to get to play with him, though.”

And why shouldn’t he be after watching Sanders in Las Vegas?

Sanders, a long, athletic, 6-foot-11 big man ouf of VCU who can play either the 4 or 5, averaged 14.0 points, 8.4 rebounds and 3.2 blocks in the Bucks’ five games.

“I give myself a C+,” Sanders said. “My defense was where I think I did the best, just blocking shots, going hard. I was just tring to keep up the intensity. I had a lot of fun out here in Vegas.”
