The Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly chosen the Wisconsin home of their new team, where growing talent will develop for their NBA roster.
The Bucks website confirmed the franchise has been chosen as the home for the NBA Developmental League team.
The report says that an arena will be built in Oshkosh with 3,500 seats. The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported it will cost $18 million, and will be funded with no government money.
Oshkosh, Racine and Sheboygan were considered as the final three choices for a D-league franchise.
The team will include Bucks organization players under contract, along with players under contract with the NBA in general.
The new arena will also feature a sports bar and team store when it is built.
22 teams currently play in the D-League:
- Atlantic Division: Delaware (Dover), Erie, Greensboro, Long Island (Uniondale, NY), Maine (Portland) and Westchester
- Central Division: Canton, Fort Wayne, Grand Rapids, Raptors 905 (Mississauga, Canada) and Windy City (Hoffman Estates, Ill.)
