The team may have had a dismal end to their season, ending in a record of 15-67, but area fans have hope for next year.

After all, former Sen. Herb Kohl just sold the team for $550 million to Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry. In the sale, Kohl is donating $100 million toward the new arena, which will keep the NBA team in Milwaukee. Edens and Lasry have pledged an additional $100 million toward the new center.

"My priority has always been and will continue to be keeping the Bucks in Milwaukee," Kohl said in a press release. "This announcement reinforces that Milwaukee is and will continue to be the home of the Bucks. Wes and Marc agree, and they share my commitment to the long-term success of this franchise in Milwaukee."

What do you think about the Milwaukee Bucks being sold? Are you happy they will be staying in the area?

Looks like the new owners have a 200 million dollar building coming. Unless they can raise a few more donations. (not extortions)
