As the Bucks aim to announce a host city for their D-League affiliate by September, team president Peter Feigin praised the efforts being made by Lakefront Jewel Group to potentially host a team. In a Sunday interview on “The Neighborhood,” Feigin specifically mentioned former Bucks player and assistant coach Joe Wolf, who leads the charge for LJG in reconstructing the Armory.
While each city hoping to make a bid for the Bucks affiliate was required to fill out a privacy agreement, it’s no surprise Sheboygan is in the running, considering the connection with Wolf. He has experience coaching in the Continental Basketball Association (2004-2006) and the D League (2006-2008), as well as the NBA as an assistant coach (2008-present).
Wolf posted a number of renderings on Twitter of what the Armory could look like once the renovation project is completed.
Other cities reported to be in the hunt for a new Bucks D League team include Racine and Oshkosh, while La Crosse was ruled out last weekend.
