LOCKOUT LOOK-OUT: KNICKS RAISE RATES; SUNS SET DEADLINE

          Despite a lockout which threatens the start of the NBA
     season, the Knicks have raised ticket prices for their 43
     home games at MSG "and want full payment upfront," according
     to Frank Litsky of the N.Y. TIMES.  Knicks VP/PR Chris
     Weiller: "We are working under the assumption that we will
     have a season as planned.  If games are lost due to the
     lockout, appropriate refunds will be provided" (N.Y. TIMES,
     7/7).  In AZ, Bob Young reports that the Suns have sent
     renewal notices to their season ticket holders, "requiring
     that account balances be paid by July 31."  Young: "That
     means ticket holders will be putting up money for games that
     will not be played if the league and players can't settle
     their [CBA] differences."  Suns GM Bryan Colangelo said that
     there will be "a leaguewide policy for ticket refunds if
     games are lost because of the lockout" (AZ REPUBLIC, 7/8).
