Bucks.com: The Bucks released their preseason schedule today with a slate of eight games beginning October 9th in Canton, Ohio against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Half of those matchups take place in Wisconsin, including two in the newly-named BMO Harris Bradley Center, one in Green Bay, and one in LaCrosse.
Fans in LaCrosse will get treated to a glimpse of the Memphis Grizzlies, while those in Green Bay will get a preview of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Bucks host the Detroit Pistons and the Washington Wizards in their two Milwaukee games.
The Bucks travel to play their other three road games in Chicago, Toronto, and Charlotte. Oddly, the game against the Bobcats will be played at 11 AM local time (ET) / 10 AM (CT).
On a Thursday.
“Bobcats fever — get vaccinated or catch it!”
Most importantly, the Bucks finish their pair of BMOHBC games (that’s your new acronym, so get used to it) with the MACC Fund Game on Saturday, Oct. 20 against Wizards. In the 35 years of this event, the annual MACC Fund Game has raised over $1.2 million dollars for children’s cancer research at the Midwest Children’s Cancer Center in Milwaukee.

Twitter: The Bucks met with Joel Przybilla Monday, and according to Gery Woefel, the Bucks are still frontrunners to sign him.

The Oregonian: Former Bucks assistant and head coach Terry Stotts is one of two final candidates for the Blazers’ top coaching spot.
Northport Patch: Tobias Harris looks REALLY good driving to the rim, but his defense on hook shots by 4’7″ swingmen could use a little work, don’t you think?
