This hasn’t been the season Milwaukee Bucks fans expected and I believe Bucks owner Herb Kohl felt the same way. There has been talk over the past three years that Kohl could be interested in selling the Milwaukee Bucks franchise and it appears a deal has been finalized.

According to ESPN,

The Milwaukee Bucks will announce later Wednesday that longtime owner Herb Kohl has reached an agreement to sell the team to hedge-fund billionaires Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry for a purchase price of $550 million, according to sources familiar with the transaction.

In January, Forbes valued the Bucks at $405 million, last among the league’s 30 franchises.

Kohl, the longtime U.S. senator, made keeping the team in Milwaukee a condition of the sale.

The Bucks have fallen way short of expectations, sinking to the bottom of the standings after harboring hopes of making a playoff push, but Wednesday’s announcement will bring an upbeat conclusion to Kohl’s search for buyers who wouldn’t try to move the team after his nearly 30 years of ownership and deep ties to the state of Wisconsin.

Among the challenges for Edens and Lasry, assuming their purchase is ratified by the league, will be erecting a new building to replace the outdated Bradley Center.

The Milwakee Bucks have the NBA’s worst record and could possibly end up with the number one overall pick in the 2014 NBA. Stay tuned to HHS1987 for all your NBA news.
