Knicks tix on secondary market = $$$


Will the Knicks be a better team this year than they were last season? Who knows.

But this much is certain: They will be more expensive to watch in person.

The Knicks have the priciest secondary-market ticket in the NBA, according to a website that tracks that sort of thing.

TiqIQ reports the average ticket price on the secondary market for Knicks seats is $320.92. That's an 11.5 percent increase from last season ($287.93), but is two dollars less than the average price for Knicks tickets on the eve of the 2011-12 lockout-shortened season.

The average ticket price for Wednesday's home opener against Milwaukee is $215.09.

The three most expensive games on the secondary market are Feb. 1 vs. Miami ($615.25), Jan. 9 vs. Miami ($468.90) and Jan. 26 against the Lakers ($448.71).

The Brooklyn Nets, by the way, have the fourth-highest ticket prices on the secondary market, according to the website.
