Milwaukee Bucks Looking to Build a New Arena

Bucks_2013Bucks owner Herb Kohl has been working with city officials in Milwaukee for years now on a plan to get a new arena done in the city. In lean economic times, that is a big mountain to climb.

However the reason is simple β€” it’s one of the worst buildings in the league. And cities with worse ones β€” for example, the Sleep Train in Sacramento β€” are already moving well along on plans to replace their structures.

The Bucks signed a lease extension in 2011 that runs through 2017, but by the end of that a plan to get a new arena built is supposed to be in place (or maybe even work could have started).
