Much like the Atlanta Hawks, the Milwaukee Bucks are an Eastern Conference team toeing the line between playoff contention and perpetual mediocrity.
Currently the eighth seed in the East, the Bucks are no lock to reach the NBA playoffs, and even if they are fortunate enough to do so, they will undoubtedly be bounced in short order.
Milwaukee's most notable player to keep an eye on at the deadline will be point guard Brandon Jennings, who, according to ESPN's Chad Ford, is none too happy with his current situation:
Jennings has, according to one source, 'irreconcilable differences' with Milwaukee. He's frustrated, according to sources, that the two sides weren't able to work out a long-term extension this summer. In addition, he feels as though he doesn't get the attention he deserves and wants a bigger market to take his talents to.
Given Jennings' displeasure with Milwaukee's handling of his financial situation and his impending status as a restricted free agent, it's starting to look increasingly likely that the Bucks may be forced to take action regarding their star point guard.
In addition to Jennings, the Bucks may be looking to rid themselves of Samuel Dalembert (via HoopsWorld), Beno Udrih or Mike Dunleavy, Jr., each of whom have contracts that expire at season's end.
