Bucks’ Fearless Financial Approach: Milwaukee isn’t Afraid to Invest in Solutions

As of spring, the Haslems are now part owners of the Milwaukee Bucks, having bought out Marc Lasry’s share. Following this, two Bucks head coaches were let go, and they’ve since hired NBA veteran Doc Rivers as the latest head coach. His contract with the Bucks runs through the 2026-27 season, with a reported income of approximately $40 million. Meanwhile, the Bucks are in a position where current and former coaches are owed money. They are also dealing with player salaries that exceed the “second apron”—a situation criticized by Giannis Antetokounmpo. Despite this, the team acquired Damian Lillard and extended Antetokounmpo’s contract, as signs of investment in the team’s competitiveness. Although the outcome remains uncertain, the Bucks are sparing no expense to achieve their goals.
