Milwaukee Bucks owner Herb Kohl announced Monday he is seeking to add to the team's ownership group partners who are committed to keeping the team in Milwaukee and building a new arena.
There has been speculation for several years whether Kohl, a former U.S. senator, might sell the team.
"When I bought the Milwaukee Bucks back in 1985, it was for one reason-to keep the team here," Kohl said in a statement. "To this day, that remains a top priority. We are proud to be an NBA city. We are very grateful to our fans and business partners who support us."
