Stephen Jackson is looking for "a better situation." Getty Images

Milwaukee Bucks guard, Stephen Jackson spent a lot of time on the bench from during a five-game stretch at the end of January in to early February. During that span he averaged under two minutes a game. Over the last four games, he’s averaged over 26 minutes a game. The 12-year NBA veteran is unsure of his role on the team, and not too happy about the uncertainty. He was on ESPN Milwaukee on the Game with Steve Haywood today, and was asked if he would like a trade.

I’m just going to see how it plays out. I mean I’ve got to be professional and obviously I can’t say I want to be traded. No one can say that and I’m not saying that but we’ll see what happens. I would like to be in a better situation if it’s here or somewhere else but my situation has to get better.

Jackson went on to say:

All I can do is worry about what I can control and that’s coming to practice every day and working, making sure I’m ready to play when I do get a chance or if I’m somewhere else I’m ready to play. That’s all I can do at this point. I can’t coach the team, I can’t tell coaches what to do or what not to do, all I can do is continue to work on my game and make sure I’m ready to play when it’s my time.

Reading those quotes, and taking in to account the Bucks are a young, rebuilding team, I would think Jackson will be on the trading block when the trade deadline comes around.
