New Investors For Bucks Get NBA Stamp Of Approval


NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said this week that a group of minority investors in the Milwaukee Bucks has been approved by the league’s board of governors.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, details are still being finalized, but a complete list of names should be released in the near future.

One name that came up in conversation, but could not be confirmed as one of the new investors, was Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Silver said he did not know if Rodgers was one of the investors or not.

“Aaron Rodgers was not discussed today,” Silver said. “I know that [co-owner] Wes [Edens] has told me that he’s had discussions with Aaron Rodgers. I don’t know exactly what the state of those discussions is with Aaron.”

Edens represented the Bucks at the board meeting and gave a report on plans for a new arena for Milwaukee.

One of the new investors is Milwaukee businessman Ted Kellner, according to the report. The executive chairman of Fiduciary Management Inc., is also chairman of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Association of Commerce and has been involved with a task force through the MMAC to find a plan to finance a new arena.
