The first round of the 2015 NBA Playoffs between the Chicago Bulls and the Milwaukee Bucks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on April 30, 2015 in Milwaukee, WisconsinLas Vegas or Seattle could become the new home of the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks if taxpayer funding for half the cost of a new arena isn't quickly approved by lawmakers. Bucks president Peter Feigin told lawmakers that the NBA would look to relocate the team to one of those two cities without public funding for half of a proposed $500 million (456 million euros) arena so construction can start this year, the Milwaukee Business Journal reported. A lease for the Bucks in their current home arena, which opened in 1988, ends in 2017 after just two more NBA seasons.

Businessman and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks to supporters during a back-yard reception in BedfordBy Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump suffered a fresh blow on Tuesday with the announcement that a professional golfing event scheduled for October at a Trump course in Los Angeles will be moved, the latest fallout from his vitriol against undocumented immigrants from Mexico.

"Due to the controversy surrounding statements made by Mr. Trump having to do with illegal immigrants pouring into the United States from Mexico and other parts of the world, Mr. Trump does not want his friends at the PGA of America to suffer any consequences or backlash with respect to the Grand Slam of Golf," Hicks said.
