The Milwaukee Bucks appear to be staying where they belong and where they have played since their inception.

ESPN's Mark Stein just tweeted the following.

This would seem to confirm the recent Bill Simmons tweets that a sale was imminent and that Seattle investors were not involved.

So, if the Bucks were on your shopping list for Seattle, cross them off. What does this mean for our situation? The only thing we can be sure of is that the team from Wisconsin won't be involved in it.

Personally speaking, I'm glad. The franchise belongs in Milwaukee and I did not want to go to war with another fan base. The battles with Oklahoma City and Sacramento gave me my fill and then some.

I say bring on expansion. It's the cleanest and most fair option for everyone involved. What does the NBA do now? We can only wait to find out.
