The Bucks have announced a press conference for 2:30 PM (CST) at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Edens and Lasry were brought to the forefront of the conversation regarding potential new owners for the Milwaukee Bucks last week when Grantland’s Bill Simmons outed them as the favorites. In the days following, reports continued to swirl about potential groups, one from Chicago and more talk about local groups, but it appears Edens and Lasry have won out.
Stein’s report says keeping the team in Milwaukee was a condition of the sale.
