Jackson Frustrated, Hasn’t Demanded Trade

10:41pm: Bucks GM John Hammond declined comment today on whether Jackson has asked to be traded, writes Charles F. Gardner of the Journal Sentinel.

9:19pm: Stephen Jackson is frustrated with his situation in Milwaukee but has yet to demand a trade, sources tell Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld (via Twitter).  With the deadline approaching, Kennedy tweets that Jackson is someone to keep an eye as the Bucks won't pay him $9.26MM to sit on the bench.

The Bucks have won their last two games and the veteran has been out of the lineup for both contests.  Jackson, 33, was suspended for Saturday's game against the Lakers for verbal abuse of an official the previous night against the Bulls.  On Monday, coach Scott Skiles benched the veteran as the Bucks topped the Pistons 103-82.

Jackson has been openly campaigning for a contract extension ever since arriving in Milwaukee in June of last year.  Earlier this month, Gery Woelfel of The Journal Times wrote that Jackson was still upset about not being approached about a new deal and planned on broaching the topic with the front office.

Yesterday, we heard that Jackson and Dwight Howard have spoken with each other and like the idea of joining Deron Williams in New Jersey.  However, it should be noted that S-Jax and Howard are both represented by agent Dan Fegan.
