Raptors President John Bitove said the ticket office's phone lines continue to ring after Tuesday's open house at SkyDome. About 600 season tickets were sold from the event, and the team is believed to be about 3,000-3,500 sales away from meeting the NBA's mandate of 12,500 season tickets by December 31. The team is working on a "massive corporate sponsorship said to be worth multiple million of dollars." Rumors had GM signing on (Jim Byers, TORONTO STAR, 12/8).
