Brandon Jennings’ days in a Bucks uniform may be numbered, according to Yahoo! NBA writer Marc J. Spears.

The 23-year-old point guard will be a restricted free-agent in the offseason and told Yahoo! Sports he would need a lucrative offer and changes to the roster and organization to stay in Milwaukee.  Jennings turned down a four-year deal worth $40 million before the start of the season and the one-year qualifying offer would net up to $4.5 million for the Compton native.

“If I take the qualifying offer and become an [unrestricted] free agent there is no way I am coming back,” Jennings told Yahoo! Sports on Friday after practice. “There is no way.”

Jennings is averaging 18.4 points-per-game on 40 percent shooting to go along with 6.6 assists a night this season for the Bucks.

“I just want to win,” Jennings said. “The way I am playing now, I just want to go to a winning team and play like that. I don’t care about being a superstar or being the main guy. I did that [the] first four years. I just want to win and be somewhere where it’s all about winning.

Give him what he wants. I'm surprised he's even willing to consider staying. If they can't keep some players like Jennings, just sell the team to Vegas and be done with it.
