Bucks to play 1st game at new Fiserv Forum on Oct. 3
MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks will play the inaugural game at Fiserv Forum on Oct. 3 when they open the preseason against the Chicago Bulls.
The Bucks said Tuesday they will wrap up their preseason schedule with a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves at Fiserv Forum on Oct. 12. Tickets for both Milwaukee home games go on sale Aug. 6.
The Bucks and Fiserv Co. of Brookfield announced last week a 25-year naming rights deal for the team’s new $524 million downtown arena, scheduled to open Aug. 26.
In addition to the two home preseason games, the Bucks will travel to play Minnesota at a location to be announced, on Oct. 7, and at Oklahoma City on Oct. 9 against the Thunder.
The Bucks also announced that they have signed guard Jaylen Morris to a two-way contract, and free agent center Brandon McCoy and guard Travis Trice to training camp contracts.
Morris, 22, appeared in six games with the Atlanta Hawks last season and averaged 4.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 16.4 minutes per game.
McCoy, 20, played one season at UNLV and was named the 2017-18 Mountain West Freshman of the Year after setting conference freshman records in both points (16.9) and rebounds (10.3) per game.
Trice, 25, averaged 8.8 points, 4.0 assists and 3.2 rebounds in the five Bucks 2018 Summer League games.
