Milwaukee Bucks officials, owner Herb Kohl and other city leaders have consistently stated the BMO Harris Bradley Center is outdated and not fit for an NBA team, and Adam Silver agreed and made clear that it is a major priority for the league.

“One obvious issue we all have to deal with is we need a new arena in Milwaukee,” Silver said.

Silver said he supports the efforts of Kohl and the Bucks to keep the team viable and in Milwaukee.

Silver added Kohl’s ownership of the Bucks is one of the team’s great strengths and that Kohl is committed to keeping the team in Milwaukee.
