I wonder how much he was asing.Two point guards in the National Basketball Association draft class of 2009 received contract extensions this week.
Golden State's Stephen Curry, drafted No. 7 overall, and Denver's Ty Lawson, drafted No. 18 that year, reached agreements on four-year extensions on their rookie-scale deals.
Wednesday's deadline did not result in a deal for Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings, who admitted after practice that the situation has been playing on his mind.
"I'm not going to lie; it was tough," Jennings said. "You just didn't know what was going to happen. At the same time, once I got on the court I just didn't think about it.
"It was more off the court. Then when you hear some of your peers get signed, you kind of get a little down. Now every time you approach those guys, you've got to go at 'em and you've got to show 'em. You've got to prove you are the top player in the draft class.
"It's all good, though."
Indications were that Bucks management and Jennings' agent, Bill Duffy, were not close to making a deal.
