Source: NBA, WNBA teams joining Bucks and Kings for next ‘Team Up for Change’

The October event will include community events in team markets


The Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings are adding teammates from the NBA and WNBA for their upcoming third installment of “Team Up for Change,” a source told The Undefeated.

The Bucks and Kings have collaborated the past two years for “Team Up for Change,” an all-day summit that aims to unite around a shared commitment and call for racial equality and social justice.

Next month, the Minnesota Timberwolves, Minnesota Lynx, Indiana Pacers, Indiana Fever, Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Wings and Cleveland Cavaliers will join the Bucks and Kings in the program, a source told The Undefeated. The expanded multiday summit will begin with a virtual event on Oct. 21, followed by a week of action featuring community events in team markets and a nine-part content series on team digital channels.

The first “Team Up for Change” event was in Sacramento in 2019, with the Bucks taking part in the event before a game. The second event took place in Milwaukee in February, with the Kings taking part before a game.

The Bucks and Kings also both visited area prisons this year as part of “Team Up for Change.”
