Brandon Jennings reportedly doesn’t want out of Milwaukee
Guard Brandon Jennings said Wednesday that he doesn’t have any problems with the Bucks and doesn’t want out of Milwaukee, according to ESPN.com’s Chris Broussard.
Broussard quoted Jennings as saying, “This is not true. That stuff has never come out of my mouth.”
Chad Ford reported Wednesday that Jennings has, “irreconcilable differences,” with the Bucks organization in an ESPN.com Insider post that requires registration.
“Jennings isn’t bluffing,” Ford wrote. “He recently changed agents in an attempt to get some traction on his relocation. Jennings’ marching orders for his new representation? Get him out of Milwaukee, either by the trade deadline or via a toxic offer sheet from another team this summer.”
Jennings’ reported firing of long-time agent Bill Duffy and plans to sign with Jeff Schwartz last week created more speculation about his intentions in advance of the Feb. 21 trade deadline.
The Mavericks are one team reportedly interested in trading for Jennings, according to sources in a report from ESPN.com’s Marc Stein.
Jennings, 23, is averaging 18.5 points and 6.1 assists in his fourth NBA season and could give an aging team like the Mavericks a young, talented player with the potential for All-Star upside.
Jennings said, "That is not true'' about his supposed discontent with the Bucks organization. "That stuff never came out of my mouth.''—
