MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Common Council is set to cast a crucial vote on a new Bucks arena.

Council members will decide Tuesday on $47 million in financing for the $500 million arena to replace the 27-year-old BMO Harris Bradley Center. The state and Milwaukee County have already approved their part of the $250 million in public financing.

Without a new arena by 2017, the NBA has said it would buy the team and move it. The Bucks have called Milwaukee home for nearly 50 years.
