Brandon Jennings' days in a Bucks uniform may be numbered, according to Yahoo! NBA writer Marc J. Spears.

The 23-year-old point guard will be a restricted free-agent in the offseason and told Yahoo! Sports he would need a lucrative offer and changes to the roster and organization to stay in Milwaukee.  Jennings turned down a four-year deal worth $40 million before the start of the season and the one-year qualifying offer would net up to $4.5 million for the Compton native.

"If I take the qualifying offer and become an [unrestricted] free agent there is no way I am coming back," Jennings told Yahoo! Sports on Friday after practice. "There is no way."

Jennings is averaging 18.4 points-per-game on 40 percent shooting to go along with 6.6 assists a night this season for the Bucks.

"I just want to win," Jennings said. "The way I am playing now, I just want to go to a winning team and play like that. I don't care about being a superstar or being the main guy. I did that [the] first four years. I just want to win and be somewhere where it's all about winning.
