MILWAUKEE -- Wisconsin will help build a new basketball arena for the Milwaukee Bucks with $220 million in bonds that would be funded by projected growth in income taxes from NBA players, Gov. Scott Walker proposed Tuesday.

The Republican governor said his "Pay Their Way" proposal would protect the state's taxpayers, while keeping the team in Milwaukee. A new arena in downtown Milwaukee could cost about $450 million to $500 million.

New owners bought the team in April and have promised to contribute $150 million toward the new arena. Former owner and ex-U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl has promised $100 million of his own money to help replace the BMO Harris Bradley Center, which was built in 1988.

NEW YORK -- The Knicks have agreed to a contract with point guard Langston Galloway for the remainder of this season and the 2015-16 season, league sources told ESPNNewYork.com.

The Knicks confirmed Tuesday afternoon that they had signed Galloway for the remainder of the season but didn't include any information on his contract status for the 2015-16 season.

Galloway's second 10-day contract with the Knicks expired earlier Tuesday, so he had been free to sign with any team.

D-League

MANILA, Philippines – San Miguel point guard Chris Ross was thrilled to have helped end his team's 14-year title drought in the All-Filipino Cup, and was even more delighted that it came while he was wearing the iconic San Miguel Beer jersey.

Ross has been with the team since 2013, when they were still playing as the Petron Blaze Boosters, and was present when they reverted to the "San Miguel Beer" name ahead of the 2014 PBA Commissioner's Cup.

"That's huge, going back from Petron to San Miguel," Ross said during an interview on ANC's "Hardball" on Monday. "There's something about that San Miguel jersey."

CLEVELAND -- The difference between a banged-up LeBron James and a fresh and rested James has been profound for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season.

That's not in question. What is, however, is this: Are James and the Cavs prepared to take the actions necessary to keep him that way?

What lessons will James and his team take from the value of rest and monitoring wear and tear? What lessons will they take from seeing how Kobe Bryant's body has broken down, and from seeing how Tim Duncan's career and championship window have been extended into his late 30s?

D-League

MANILA, Philippines – JuneMar Fajardo and Arwind Santos were both prepared to play long minutes in the playoffs of the PBA Philippine Cup, according to San Miguel Beer head coach Leo Austria as he defended himself amid criticism of how he managed his players' minutes.

Santos and Fajardo both played extensively during San Miguel's seven-game Finals series against Alaska, with Santos logging in 46 minutes and 41 seconds in Game 7 and Fajardo 44 minutes and 55 seconds.

The two were clearly flagging by the final quarter, gasping for air not only due to the long minutes but the frenetic pace set by Alaska, who rallied from a 23-point hole to take a six-point lead in the final quarter.

The Golden State Warriors' backcourt duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson highlight a group of five players who plan to participate in next month's All-Star 3-point contest, Yahoo! Sports has reported.

The Los Angeles Clippers' J.J. Redick confirmed that he will compete, and the report, citing league sources, said Atlanta's Kyle Korver and Portland's Wesley Matthews will join in.

"It's something that I've always wanted to participate in at least once in my career," Redick said Monday night. "I don't know if I've been in the conversation but I'm just excited and honored to be a part of All-Star Weekend."

LOS ANGELES -- Jamal Crawford never stews over statistics. As a prolific scorer, he knows he's usually one shot away from triggering an offensive outburst.

So it was easy for him to shrug off his 20-of-62 shooting in five previous games and let things fly. Crawford scored 21 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, and the Los Angeles Clippers held off the struggling Denver Nuggets 102-98 Monday night for their fifth straight victory.

"I wanted to be aggressive and try to open up stuff," said Crawford, last season's Sixth Man of the Year.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Russell Westbrook scored 18 points, Serge Ibaka added 13 points and a season-high 19 rebounds, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 92-84 on Monday night without the injured Kevin Durant.

Reserves Anthony Morrow and Reggie Jackson each added 14 points to help Oklahoma City's bench outscore Minnesota's 45-21.
