ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings has decided to part ways with agent Bill Duffy. A restricted free agent at the end of the season, Jennings confirmed the decision to leave the only agent he's had as a professional on Monday and sent out a series of tweets to thank the agency. "I wanna thank BDA & the whole staff for everything they have done for me. They supported me through it all and always wanted the best for me "Bill Duffy was like a father figure to me. A uplifting & a great guy overall. "At this time I'm making a decision thats best for me and my Family. I wish nothing but the best for everyone!!!" Duffy signed Jennings in 2009 while the point guard was playing in Europe rather than play college basketball in the United States and has represented him ever since. One of the more prominent agents in basketball, Duffy represents players such as Rajon Rondo, Steve Nash, Yao Ming, Klay Thompson and Bucks center Joel Przybilla. "I can honestly say we put our heart and soul into helping Brandon on every level and put his life in a positive direction," Duffy told the Sports Business Journal. "He has the prerogative to surround himself with whom he chooses, and we fully respect that. We wish him nothing but the best." The Bucks are unable to negotiate an extension with Jennings until after the season, but his changing of agents at this time is a clear signal Jennings wasn't comfortable heading into free agency with Duffy as his representation. General manager John Hammond and the rest of the front office will likely be familiar with whoever Jennings chooses as his new agent, but will still have to make up ground on working toward a contract. Daniels leaves team: Bucks guardforward Marquis Daniels did not accompany the team to Denver on Monday because he is away dealing with a family matter. "I'm not sure exactly what his status will be in the next couple of days," Bucks coach Jim Boylan said. "We'll just have to wait and see." With rookie guard Doron Lamb in the D-League, Milwaukee could be shorthanded in the backcourt if Daniels misses the quick two game trip to Denver and Utah. Though he's averaged just 7.7 minutes per game under Boylan, Daniels is a nice insurance policy that can play minutes off the bench if any of the three in Milwaukee's guard rotation is in foul trouble or happens to get hurt during the course of the game. Not a believer: The two game trip is going to be tough for the Bucks for many different reasons, but the home record of the teams they play is a major one. The Denver Nuggets are 20-3 at the Pepsi Center, while Utah is 17-5 in Salt Lake City.Whenever a team ventures into Denver, altitude is always talked about. Some feel it's a factor, some think it's overblown. "I don't buy into the altitude thing," Boylan said. "You go out there, and you play. If we need to shorten our rotations because guys get a little winded, then whatever. You adjust to it during the course of the game. "They are a good team because they are a good team. They move the ball well and have a lot of guys with triple-threat type skills. They play together as a team quite nicely We are going to have our hands full, for sure."
