After the Sacramento Kings‘ relocation to Seattle failed, many questioned how long it would be before those in Washington saw NBA basketball again.
If something isn’t fixed with the Milwaukee Bucks‘ Bradley Center, it might not be that long.
The Bucks have been a franchise influx for quite some time as current owner Herb Kohl has been looking to sell. Wanting to do the right thing, Kohl has been attempting to sell the team to a local owner, something they’ve found in a Chicago business man who has interest in purchasing the team. Nothing has come of it as of yet though, but they may want to speed up the process as incumbent NBA commissioner Adam Silver, who is set to take over in 2014 is not a fan of the Bucks’ Bradley Center, recently suggesting it was unfit for the NBA:
On Wednesday, a top NBA official, soon to be the league’s top executive, made the case clear.
“One obvious issue we all have to deal with is we need a new arena in Milwaukee,” said Adam Silver, deputy National Basketball Association commissioner, speaking of the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Silver continues to go on, suggesting how outdated the arena is, an obvious sign that the city and council members need to be open to a new arena if the team is to stay in Milwaukee.
