Bucks' Stephen Jackson Interested In Playing With Derrick Rose, Bulls

Stephen Jackson is warming the bench in Milwaukee, stuck in the doghouse of Bucks coach Scott Skiles. With the NBA trade deadline fast approaching next week, Jackson is an obvious candidate for a trade in the coming days -- and according to Aggrey Sam of Comcast SportsNet Chicago, he'd love to play for the Bulls.

“Who wouldn’t want to play with Derrick Rose?" Jackson said. "Right up the street? It would be a great fit for me. I don’t think anybody in the league would say they wouldn’t want to do that."

Jackson began the season in Milwaukee as a starter, and he's averaging 10.5 points and 3.2 rebounds this season, but an ongoing feud with Skiles has led to the 33-year-old swingman's benching. Jackson hasn't started a game for the Bucks since Jan. 17 and hasn't played at all since Feb. 19.

"At the end of the day, I just want to play," he said. "I’ve been a competitor my whole career, I’ve won everywhere I’ve went, so at this point, I just want to get back on the court and do what I do best, wherever that is. I’m just here, working out every day, just waiting for my opportunity."
