To get back on an NBA roster, Brandon Jennings will first need to prove his worth down in the G League.

The former No. 10 pick in the 2009 NBA Draft entered the G League's player pool, and has since been claimed by the Wisconsin Herd, league sources told The New York Post's Marc Stein.

Jennings is coming off a stint playing overseas in the Chinese Basketball Association for the Shanxi Brave Dragons. He averaged 27.8 points, 6.7 assists, five rebounds, and 2.6 steals on 43.2 percent shooting across 13 appearances prior to being waived on Dec. 9.

The 28-year-old point guard has suited up for the Milwaukee Bucks, Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic, New York Knicks, and most recently with the Washington Wizards for 23 games in 2016-17.

Jennings' production peaked during his third year with the Bucks in 2011-12, averaging a career-best 19.1 points. During his rookie campaign two years earlier, Jennings dropped 55 points on 34 shots in a game against the Golden State Warriors at the Bradley Center.
