Default Milwaukee looking into D-League in Oshkosh, WI

The city of Oshkosh (WI) is trying to bring an NBA D-League team to the city. The NBA's Milwaukee Bucks issued a request for proposals as they are seeking to establish a Wisconsin-based D-League team that would be located within two hours of Milwaukee. The city of Oshkosh would probably have to use a temporary facility at first until a 3,000-seat arena could be built for the team. The Bucks want the D-League team to start play in 2017.

Is the Resch Center trying to bring them in... seems like that would be a pretty good fit. I was figuring either them or Madison were the likely spots, although I guess a city like Oshkosh or Appleton would look at this as a way to get some outside traffic.

It could be the Oshkosh B'Gosh (with a basketball dressed in overalls for a logo)

Looks as if Green Bay is out of the running. Grand Chute (Appleton area), Sheboygan, Oshkosh and La Crosse have all been mentioned.

I'd Oshkosh is the likely choice. The D-League will likely see as many as five expansion teams for 2017-18. Oshkosh(Milwaukee), Rochester(Minnesota), Omaha(Denver), Kissimmee(Orlando), Bakersfield(LA Clippers). This also leaves Erie available to someone to pick-up(Portland, New Orleans or Atlanta). Hopefully the team doesn't get abandoned. By 2018-19, we could see the D-League at 30 teams with Washington's new arena finished, Atlanta placing a team somewhere in Georgia and either Portland or New Orleans left depending who doesn't pick up Erie. IMO, if Miami looks to add a team in South Florida, Portland & New Orleans would be covered for their teams. Portland could pick-up Sioux Falls & New Orleans could then pick-up Erie.

Apparently La Crosse and Grand Chute are out...it's down to Oshkosh, Racine and Sheboygan.

Racine's looking at building a new arena for the team...it may also house a USHL team.

A rehabbed armory in Sheboygan would be ideal; but I agree, it seems like Racine will prevail.
