Brandon Jennings is pleased with his imminent move from Milwaukee to Detroit.

The former Bucks point guard was in Toronto on Tuesday, the day word leaked he would be traded from his only NBA home to the Pistons, in exchange for Brandon Knight, Khris Middleton and Viacheslav Kravtsov.

Jennings will be sign-and-traded and will ink a three-year, $25 million U.S. contract.

The Compton, Cal. native was in town at the behest of good friend and fellow L.A. NBAer Amir Johnson, of the Raptors for the OVO Bounce Tournament at Ryerson's Kerr Hall.

Jennings declined to say much, saying he wants to "stay under the radar for now," but did admit "I'm happy" about the trade.

Jennings was a restricted free agent.

The OVO Bounce Tournament is an annual event held in conjunction with Drake's OVO Fest. It pairs OVO with Toronto AAU Powerhouse CIA Bounce, the former summer squad of Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Tyler Ennis, Xavier Rathan-Mayes and many more.
