Scott Walker Signs Bill Clearing Public Funds For Bucks' Arena

Aug 12, 2015 8:38 PM

Scott Walker, governor of Wisconsin, approved $250 million in public money to help build an arena for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Signing the legislation paves the way for a Common Council vote on the proposal next month and a potential groundbreaking as soon as October.

The governor made no changes to the bill with his powerful veto pen.

"This is an important day for the state of Wisconsin. It's not just important for Milwaukee, but the state as a whole," Walker said at Wisconsin State Fair Park. "We think this is a good solid move as a good steward of the taxpayers' money here in Wisconsin."

Chris Copeland Reaches One-Year, $1.1M+ Deal With Bucks

Jul 23, 2015 3:55 PM

Free agent forward Chris Copeland has agreed on a one-year deal with the Milwaukee Bucks worth over $1.1 million, league sources told RealGM.

Copeland had spent the past several days mulling possible deals with the Bucks and Oklahoma City Thunder. With the Bucks slowly bringing along Jabari Parker from a torn ACL and his relationship with Jason Kidd, Copeland will compete for a significant role in the team’s rotation next season.

Copeland was stabbed outside a nightclub in New York in early April, and will be fully healthy for training camp in 2015-16.

After a breakout season for the New York Knicks in which he averaged 8.7 points, Copeland signed a two-year deal with the Indiana Pacers. In his first season with the Knicks and Pacers, the 6-foot-8 forward shot 42.1 percent and 41.8 percent from three-point land, respectively. He scored 6.2 points a night in 50 games last season.

In three NBA seasons, Copeland is a 6.5 points per game scorer while shooting 37.3 percent from 3-point field.

Copeland, 31, went undrafted in 2006 out of Colorado — playing overseas before joining the Knicks in 2012.

Bleacher Report earlier reported the agreement between Copeland and Milwaukee.

Wisconsin Senate Hasn't Reached Deal On Bucks' Arena Financing

Jul 14, 2015 11:33 AM

Wisconsin senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said Tuesday that he still doesn't have the support needed to bring up a financing measure for the proposed new Milwaukee Bucks arena. 

The state could provide $250 million in public money plus interest for the project.

Fitzgerald said Democrats have been asking about the possibility of building a convention center in addition to the arena but said he's uncertain whether GOP senators could back that.

Bucks' President: NBA Will Move Team To Seattle Or Vegas Without Public Money For Arena

Jul 6, 2015 7:08 PM

Peter Feigin, president of the Milwaukee Bucks, said on Monday that the team will relocate to Las Vegas or Seattle if $250 million of public funding isn't approved for a new arena.

Feigin said the Bucks owners' purchase agreement for the team includes a provision that construction of a new arena start in 2015. 

New York City hedge fund executive Wes Edens, Marc Lasry and Jamie Dinan purchased the team for $550 million in May 2014.

"The window is closing," Feigin said. "We can't wait months, even weeks to start the public process."

Feigin said over the past decade, about 65 percent of financing for arenas across the country has come from the public.

"This is about building a winner and building a brand and a product," Feigin said. "It is similar to what the (Milwaukee) Brewers and (Green Bay) Packers have done."

Kidd Gives Freedom On Offense, If You Do Everything Exactly Right On Defense

Jul 6, 2015 12:39 PM

Jason Kidd has successfully turned the Milwaukee Bucks into one of the NBA's best defensive teams along with assistant coach Sean Sweeney.

Jared Dudley spoke of how Kidd implemented his system.

"What J-Kidd kind of instilled when I first came in was a system where we were going to play the right way," said Dudley, who played in Milwaukee last season before being dealt to the Wizards last week. "Offensively, you were going to have freedom. But you were going to have to do everything exactly right on defense to have that freedom."
