The 2016-2017 New York Knicks: The Worst "Super Team" Ever Created

The 2016-2017 New York Knicks: The Worst

How much court time he sees with the Knicks remains to be seen, but NY needs to try to find some useful players moving forward. The Knicks get younger and Jennings now has the opportunity to pursue a championship.

During their offseason roster overhaul, the New York Knicks signed free-agent guard Brandon Jennings in hopes he could both spark his career and provide valuable backup minutes for the team. After an off-season that consisted of signing Rose, Joakim Noah, Courtney Lee and Brandon Jennings it seemed like the Knicks organization was ready for a dominating season.

The Knicks will pay Jennings the balance of the $5 million he's owed this season. Charlotte is now 25-34 which is 11th in the Eastern Conference standings.

It will be interesting to see where Jennings ultimately ends up, as there are a number of teams interested in buyout candidates, and adding Brandon to this mix creates even more options for these contenders.

Signed to a one-year, $5 million contract during the offseason, Jennings averaged 8.6 points and 4.9 assists in 58 games for NY, which is suffering through yet another disappointing season. But the Knicks are again focusing more on the triangle offense, which isn't Jennings' strength.

For the Pistons to land Jennings, it would first require the 6-foot-1, 170-pound guard to clear waivers. After a pair of 10-day contracts, he eventually signed a three-year deal with the club.

Per Wojnarowski, the deal will be partially guaranteed through 2017-18.
