Nets land in dollar bin
Team Marketing Report is out with its annual survey of NBA ticket costs, which shows that – no surprise – the two most expensive teams are the Knicks and Lakers, who average $117.47 and $99.25 for their non-premium seats.
The Nets’ average is $37.06, below the league figure of $48.48.
But wait: Many fans are more interested in the going rate on the secondary market, where prices rise and fall based on demand.
Take Wednesday: The Knicks host the lowly Kings, and the cheapest ticket was going for $30 as of late Friday on FanSnap.com, a site that monitors several dozen outlets.
That same night the Nets host the Grizzlies. Lowest price, not counting fees: $1.
