The Milwaukee Bucks' sale to hedge fund billionaires Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry is expected to be finalized on Thursday.

There was a push to have an extra thorough vetting process of new owners following the Donald Sterling scandal, according to sources. But that process is complete with Edens and Lasry and the Board of Governors will approve the transactions.

In a unique part of the sales contract, the NBA has the right to buy the Bucks back from Edens and Lasry for $575 million if a new arena isn't finalized by 2017, when the Bucks' current lease is up.
