However, the Bucks were able to make a trade acquisition for Jared Dudley. The Bucks made some small signings by signing free agents Johnny O'Bryant, Jerryd Bayless, Damien Inglis, Michael Eric, and Elijah Millsap. The Bucks have cut ties with many players like Carlos Delfino and maybe going away for there European style of basketball.

Milwaukee Bucks fans are known to be very rowdy and cheerful when they had good teams in the city. The problem is that the Bucks have not been that good in about a decade. Fans are optimistic about Jabari Parker and what he can bring to this team. However, these fans are smart and know the team around him is no where near ready. Unless the luck that the Bucks had in there early history come back like how they emerge on the scene unexpectcly in the early 70s, fans know there in for a long 82 game season with no playoff to speak about. The loyal faithful that still buy season tickets should be given great praise as most bandwagon fans have already left and claim to be Clippers, Cavs, or Bulls fans until that team falls apart. Much praise to the remaining Buck fans.
Milwaukee Bucks Rumors

It has become clear that public funding, from some source, will be required to finance the project. Milwaukee city officials will have to see if the team is enough of a revenue draw to worth keeping in the city. The team has lost money allegedly for a while now and not breaking profit. In the event that funding is not secured in time, it is highly probable that the Bucks will be forced to relocate to a new market. The market that is always highly rumored is Seattle. Many believe that the success of the Seahawks and the Mariners making profits will help the league and the Bucks franchise. Others against this move says that the Seattle market will put too much pressure for the team to win now being in a competitive city and not loyal fan base as this market lost the Super Sonics which are now know as the Thunder. The future of this team is not only doubtful on the court, but in the financial part. This franchise has some critical decisions to make.
