MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Bucks will be implementing new security measures starting at Wednesday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets.

"For the past season and a half, National Basketball Association security policy has required random screening and wanding of all guests entering the BMO Harris Bradley Center for Milwaukee Bucks games and any NBA games," said the team. "Effective with the Wednesday, Feb. 20 Brooklyn Nets vs. Bucks game and for all Bucks games thereafter, the NBA is requiring that this security screening of every fan occur at every Bucks home game."

The new security measures are league-wide and all teams are required to comply. The Bucks ask that fans attending tonight's game arrive early to prevent long lines, "and that any unnecessary items be left in their locked vehicles if possible, and that any bags or purses are open and ready for inspection when the screener position is reached. Keys and metallic objects should be held in their hand upon arrival."

The Bucks and the BMO Harris Bradley Center say they have been preparing for several weeks for this process to provide for timely entry.
