He moved to the NBA the following season with Milwaukee and spent four years there. He also played with Detroit, Orlando, New York and Washington. In November of 2009, Jennings set the record as the youngest player in NBA history to score at least 50 points, when he netted 55 against Golden State at the age of 20 years and 52 days. Jennings started last season with Shanxi in China, where he averaged 27.8 points, 6.8 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 2.7 steals, before returning to Milwaukee where he posted 5 points and 2.9 assists in 15 appearances.
