Jennings ‘Real Shocked’ Over Skiles Firing
Reaction was mixed in the Milwaukee Bucks’ locker room at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in advance of their game with the Phoenix Suns early Tuesday evening with regard to Scott Skiles’ parting of the ways with the organization.
“Scott Skiles was my coach for four years. He was my first NBA coach. He was the guy who put the ball in my hands as a rookie and just told me to go, so I have nothing negative to say,” he (Brandon Jennings) said. “I’m real shocked.
“It was tough on me a little bit, but I slept on it and I know it’s part of the business. So we just have to move on. But he told me to keep in contact with him, and I will.”
