NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will meet with investors of the Milwaukee Bucks franchise to talk about the possibility of getting a new arena in the city, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Silver is in town to talk with young professionals that are involved in start-up companies and plans to participate in the “Emerging Business CEO Roundtable.”

Silver also plans on getting updates from the Bucks' ownership about their efforts to find a location for a new arena. The league has given the franchise a deadline of 2017 for the team to be in a new facility. If that does not happen, the league could purchase the team and move it elsewhere.

Silver also plans to attend Tuesday's game between the Bucks and Detroit Pistons, according to the paper.

The Bucks have played in the 18,000-seat BMO Harris Bradley Center since 1988. The Bradley Center is the NBA's third-oldest arena, after Oracle Arena in Oakland and New York City's Madison Square Garden.
