Brandon Jennings Returns from India
Bucks guard Brandon Jennings has been a jetsetter since the age of 18, playing professionally in Italy after high school and visiting China last summer for a charity basketball game. His passport continues to collect stamps as he just returned from India. Jennings was overseas with the NBA to promote and grow the sport of basketball. He is one of 16 NBA or WNBA players/legends to travel to India in the last three years as part of the league’s continued commitment to grow the game.
Jennings was in India until from May 13-May 18, hosting basketball clinics in Mumbai and Pune, making him the first NBA player to ever host an event in Pune. He also attended the Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA National Skills Challenge Finals in Mumbai.
