Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings said he's not worried about what the next week will bring leading up to the NBA trade deadline.
Several reports circulated Wednesday about the possibility of Jennings being dealt before the deadline. He will be a restricted free agent at the end of the current season.
"Whatever happens, happens," Jennings said. "But I'm not even thinking about it."
Jennings enters Wednesday's game against Philadelphia as the Bucks' leading scorer at 18.5 points a game and also is averaging 6.1 assists and 1.90 steals.
An ESPN.com report cited sources as saying Jennings is frustrated and has "irreconcilable differences" with the club.
"As long as I'm in a Bucks uniform, I'm going to play every night for the Bucks," Jennings said while seated at his locker before the game against the 76ers. "I'm trying to get out of this shooting slump that I'm in. Every player goes through it.
"Look at the Lakers. Look at Boston in the beginning, the Brooklyn Nets. I guess we just hit our slump for a minute and this is the time it's over with."
Jenning was 3 of 17 in the Bucks' loss to Washington on Monday and is 11 of 44 in the last two games. Milwaukee has lost four in a row and six of its last seven to fall to a 25-25 record.
Jennings recently switched agents. He left Bill Duffy and BDA Sports Management and is expected to officially sign soon with Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports Management, following a waiting period required by the players union.
"Just because I got a new agent, that doesn't mean I'm trying to leave Milwaukee or I'm unhappy," Jennings said. "That has nothing to do with it.
"It was just a time for a change and it was a decision me and my family made. So all these stories coming out about me not wanting to be here and this and that, I never said that.
"That never came out of my mouth. If anything, I've always said I love Milwaukee."
Bucks coach Jim Boylan said center Larry Sanders remains out of the lineup and there is no timetable for his return.
Sanders went to Chicago to receive a second medical opinion on Tuesday but the team is awaiting final test results, Boylan said.
