The Detroit Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to a sign-and-trade, resulting in the Bucks’ free agent Brandon Jennings to the Pistons. His contract is worth around $25 million over three years.

This deal will also send Brandon Knight, Khris Middleton and Slava Kravtsov to the Bucks.

Last season, Jennings led the Bucks to the playoffs where they were knocked out in the first round by the two-time champion Miami Heat team. The series was not as memorable as Jennings’ comments about the series, saying that the Bucks would beat Miami in six games.

The Pistons made major moves this off season, bringing Josh Smith, Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome to Detroit. Billups will serve as a mentor to the young and budding Jennings. With the team that they are building, they will be a force to be reckoned with during the season.

The Bucks also landed a major player in Gary Neal. On Tuesday, the two parties agreed to a two-year deal, worth close to $6 million. Neal is known more recently for his three-point shooting performance in the NBA Finals.
