Lawmaker says goal is to announce Bucks deal Wednesday

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Milwaukee officials, leaders of the Wisconsin state Legislature and the president of the Milwaukee Bucks all said Tuesday they're close to reaching a deal to pay for a new $500 million arena for the NBA team.

The goal is to announce a deal Wednesday, said Rep. John Nygren, co-chairman of the Legislature's budget-writing committee. Nygren's committee is finalizing the state budget this week and intends to include a Bucks financing component.

Talks have been ongoing for months to come up with a way to pay for the arena that's part of a planned $1 billion entertainment district in downtown Milwaukee. Without a new stadium by 2017, the NBA has said it will buy back the team and relocate it.
