President Joe Biden will welcome the Milwaukee Bucks to the White House on Nov. 8 to commemorate their 2020-21 NBA championship season.

ESPN first reported the date of the visit.

The Bucks will be the first NBA team to visit the White House since the Cleveland Cavaliers were honored on Nov. 11, 2016.

In many previous years the trip to the White House for reigning champions has been built around a scheduled game with the Washington Wizards, and the Bucks play at Capital One Arena at 5 p.m. Nov. 7.

Nov. 8 is an off day for the Bucks before they head to Philadelphia for a game against the 76ers.
