Milwaukee Bucks Plan New Arena in 2017
The Milwaukee Bucks have told NBA Commissioner David Stern that when the team’s lease at the BMO Harris Bradley Center expires in 2017 the franchise will have a plan that includes a new arena.
Stern made that clear Friday in a teleconference with reporters in advance of the NBA’s playoffs.
Asked whether the NBA had imposed a hard deadline of 2017 to have a new arena in place in Milwaukee, Stern said: “The Bucks came to us and said we will have a plan that will have a new arena at the end of this extension of this lease. ‘And will you please give us an extension and approve it?’ And we did. That’s the current state of the record.”
