Milwaukee Bucks President Peter Feigin speaks at a press conference where a new arena proposal was announced Wednesday, April. 7, 2015, in Milwaukee.

An expansion National Hockey League team is more than likely headed to Las Vegas in a few years to be housed at the new MGM/AEG arena behind the New York-New York.

Maybe the Las Vegas Knights — the name some expect billionaire businessman Bill Foley will call his hockey team — will have company at the Las Vegas Arena, a $375 million facility in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.

Milwaukee Bucks president Peter Feigin told Wisconsin lawmakers Monday the team could leave for Seattle or Las Vegas if the state doesn’t pony up $250 million in public funding to help construct a new downtown arena for the team, reports the Milwaukee Business Journal.

The Las Vegas Bucks have a nice ring to it, right?
