GRIZZLIES' MAGIC NUMBER DOWN TO 4,086
Published November 28, 1994
The Grizzlies announced they've sold 304 season-tickets over the past week to bring their total to 8,414. They still need to sell 4,086 to reach the NBA mandated minimum of 12,500 by the December 31st deadline. Grizzlies GM Stu Jackson said he was "more confident today" than he was two weeks ago about the team reaching the minimum. They still must average a thousand sales a week to reach 12,500, but Jackson said the team is involved in negotiations with members of the corporate community to help reach that goal. The team will bring Magic Johnson to Vancouver next Wednesday to put the "hard sell" on potential corporate ticket buyers (Elliott Pap, VANCOUVER SUN, 11/25). But, according to Howard Tsumura of the Vancouver PROVINCE, a "check of some of Vancouver's biggest money players indicated that interest towards large block sales was lukewarm" (Vancouver PROVINCE, 11/25).
