Jennings agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with China Shanxi on Friday, Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings began last season on the Knicks as Derrick Rose's backup at point guard, but was waived in late February after he informed the team he preferred to play for a contender than a rebuilding club. He signed with the Wizards -- a top-seeded playoff team -- just a few days later. In Washington, Jennings saw his overall workload and production take a significant dip, posting just 3.5 points and 4.7 assists while shooting an abysmal 27.4 percent from the field. Likely as a result of his poor play with the Wizards in what is supposed to be the 27-year-old's prime, it appears there weren't any NBA franchises legitimately interested in Jennings' services heading into the 2017-18 campaign. According to Spears, once the Chinese season concludes, Jennings will look for an NBA suitor.

Jennings scored 13 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding four assists in 17 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 116-98 Game 3 loss to the Hawks.

EDGE Analysis

After being held scoreless in the series opener, Jennings has bounced back with 23 points in the last two games. If Otto Porter's neck injury limits his minutes at all going forward, Jennings could pick up some of the slack, but Kelly Oubre would be the most likely candidate to replace Porter in the starting five if necessary.

Jennings is expected to return to the bench for Sunday's playoff opener against the Hawks, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings started the final two games of the regular season in place of the ailing John Wall (quad), averaging just 2.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 3.0 steals across 27.5 minutes. However, Wall has now been cleared for a return to the lineup and the Wizards are likely set to shrink their rotation for the upcoming playoff run, so Jennings will head to the bench and should see a decreased role moving forward.

Jennings went for two points (1-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six assists, five steals and two rebounds across 28 minutes during a 105-101 victory against the Pistons on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings got the start at point guard with John Wall (thigh) sidelined but posted a pretty disappointing line other than the five steals, which matched a season high. It shouldn't have come as too big of a surprise, however, as Jennings has not scored in double figures since March 24. Jennings could get another start if Wall is kept on the sidelines for the team's final regular season game on Wednesday.

Jennings will start Monday's game against the Pistons.

EDGE Analysis

The seven-year vet will earn the start following news that teammate John Wall is inactive Monday. Jennings, who started the year with New York, is averaging 7.3 points per game and 4.9 assists per game this season.

Jennings tallied 10 points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven assists and one rebound across 15 minutes in Monday's 110-102 loss to the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

In Jennings' time with the Wizards, he has failed to post a single game that is reminisicent of his time with the Knicks, but Monday night marked the first. He flirted with a double-double in just 15 minutes as he found an open man nearly every trip down the court. Although Jennings wasn't that efficient Monday, he showed an ability to score off the bench when called upon. The issue is it's hard to call on Jennings when John Wall and Bradley Beal are both ahead of him in the pecking order on the roster, which caps his upside.

Jennings tallied three points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists and one rebound across 16 minutes in a 125-124 overtime win over the Trail Blazers on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

As was expected when he signed with the Wizards earlier this month, Jennings has had to settle for a much more muted role with his new team than he previously enjoyed with the Knicks. With backcourt starters John Wall and Bradley Beal both frequently exceeding 35 minutes, Jennings has seen 18 or fewer minutes in all of his six appearances with the Wizards, averaging 1.8 points, 4.3 assists and 1.0 rebound.

Jennings will make his Wizards debut Friday against the Raptors, CSN Mid-Atlantic's J. Michael reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings, who signed with the Wizards on Wednesday, is expected to eventually settle in as the top backup to starting point guard John Wall, though it's not clear if he'll unseat Tomas Satoransky or Trey Burke (personal) for those duties Friday. The 27-year-old has only went through one practice with his new team, so coach Scott Brooks may want Jennings to get more familiar with the team's offensive sets before deploying him with the second unit.

Jennings will sign with the Wizards once he clears waivers at 5:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, the Wizards will bring Jennings aboard to bolster their thin bench unit, with the 27-year-old expected to settle in as the top backup to starting point guard John Wall. Jennings' arrival figures to result in Trey Burke dropping out of the rotation, but there likely won't be more than 10-to-15 minutes available for Jennings in most games with backcourt starters Wall and Bradley Beal both often taking on hefty workloads. Jennings won't be active for the Wednesday's game against the Raptors, though he could make his team debut in the rematch with Toronto on Friday.

Jennings is expected to sign with the Wizards on Wednesday once he clears waivers, Mike Wise of The Undefeated reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings is fully expected to clear waivers Wednesday afternoon, so it looks as if the former Knick will be able to address the Wizards' need for a backup point guard, as Trey Burke has been rather underwhelming in that role this season. Jennings averaged 8.6 points and 4.9 assists per game in the same role with New York this season, and he will add additional firepower to Washington's second unit. His fantasy value, however, will remain spotty and limited with the presence of All-Star point guard John Wall, who has managed to be active for 55 of the team's 57 games so far this season.
