MILWAUKEE (AP) — NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is in Milwaukee to meet with Milwaukee Bucks investors and talk with young professionals involved in start-up companies.
Silver is expected to get an update from Bucks’ owners on a new multipurpose arena. The NBA has set a deadline of late 2017 for the Bucks to be in a new arena. Failing to meet that deadline means the league could buy the team and move it elsewhere.
The commissioner will also meet with representatives of Milwaukee and Madison start-ups. One of the Bucks owners, Wes Eden, set up the meeting to encourage Wisconsin-based start-ups to integrate with the NBA and the Bucks.
The Journal Sentinel says Silver also plans to attend Tuesday night’s game between the Bucks and Detroit Pistons.
