Kidd: Bucks not planning to make a move

Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd allayed any rumors of a Bucks trade at the deadline, saying no major changes are planned: "As a professional athlete, the small print says there could be a trade at some point in your career. Sometimes expected, sometimes not. You have to be able to handle that. But right now, this is our team. There's no one coming in and there's no one leaving."
