(WNFL)- The Milwaukee Bucks will play one of its home games in London next season. The NBA has announced that the Bucks will take on the New York Knicks next January 15th at the O-2 Arena in southeast London. It's the fifth straight year that the league has played a regular season contest in England's capital -- part of an ongoing effort to promote NBA basketball overseas. It does leave new Bucks' owners Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry with one fewer home date in their first season. The Bucks will have 40 contests at the B-M-O Harris Bradley Center instead of the customary 41. Milwaukee played a pair of exhibition games in China in 2008, after the Bucks drafted Chinese forward Yi Jianlian. The Minnesota Timberwolves will play a regular season contest on foreign soil. They'll take on Houston November 12th in Mexico City.
