Next NBA commissioner: 'We need a new arena in Milwaukee'

CREATED Sep. 18, 2013

The next commissioner of the NBA made a strong statement Wednesday about the need for a new home for the Milwaukee Bucks.

"One obvious issue we all have to deal with is that we need a new arena in Milwaukee," said Adam Silver, according to the Business Journal.

Silver will replace David Stern.

He appeared at the "Bucks Partner Summit" at the Discovery World Museum.

Silver credited Herb Kohl for keeping the team "viable and in Milwaukee," according to the article.

Kohl has said "we will find a way" to keep the Bucks in Milwaukee through a new arena.

There's been contentiousness about taxpayer funding over such a project.
