Chicago Cubs right-hander Ryan Dempster said Tuesday he is mulling trade possibilities but expects to make his scheduled start Wednesday afternoon against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers are both reportedly interested in Dempster, who can veto any trade because he has at least 10 years of service in the major leagues, including five with his current team.

"I have some options and a pretty good idea of where I want to go," Dempster said, declining to reveal what team that was because "I don't want to name specific teams because that's how more rumors get started."

There were multiple reports Monday that Dempster had agreed to be traded to Atlanta. However, the reports proved to be false.
