Milwaukee Bucks owner Herb Kohl announced today that he intends to sell the team to investors Marc Lasry and Wesley Edens for $550 million. That’s more than the $405 million Forbes estimated the team's worth at earlier this year, and a good sum more than the $18 million Kohl paid for the Bucks in 1985. The deal is subject to NBA approval. The involved parties announced the deal this afternoon a...
