The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as the Bucks have signed their final lease with the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

In this latest edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we look at a couple of significant moments and announcements that close one chapter of Bucks history and start a new one, and more.
