The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as Jon Horst spoke about the upcoming season on a Brewers broadcast.

In this latest edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we look at all of the most recent news surrounding the Bucks, including Jon Horst’s interview on Fox Sports Wisconsin, Spencer Hawes‘ contract situation, and more.

As we move into September, we also approach the final stretch of the offseason without Bucks basketball. To help fill that gap throughout the month, we’re holding our second annual Bucks History Month here on Behind the Buck Pass.

Look out for more details on that later in the afternoon, and check in with this column every morning throughout the month for a recap of posts on the current Bucks as well as those from years gone by.
