DeCourcy On Jennings

Mike DeCourcy has another column up on Brandon Jennings move to Europe, pointing out a number of misconceptions, not least of all the idea that a European team is going to be real hot on having a one-year deal with an 18-year-old.

He also points out the ancillary benefits of college ball.  Even if Jennings comes in as the number one pick next year, everyone here will have forgotten him.  Odds are he'll get drafted ahead of, say, Ty Lawson.  But Lawson will have a name and a reputation in the states, and that'll pay off. When it comes to fans and awareness, to borrow a phrase, what happens in Barcelona stays in Barcelona.
