Bobcats Run Promotion Tying Price Of Select Season Tickets To Lottery Pick

The Bobcats are conducting a promotion where the "price for an upper-deck seat will equal the draft pick the team wins" in the NBA Draft Lottery later this month, according to Andrew Dunn of the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER. The team finished the season with a 7-59 record and has a 25% chance of landing the first overall selection. Should the Bobcats “get the top pick, the season ticket would be $1 per game, or $43 for the season.” There are about 500 seats eligible "for the ‘Pay the Pick’ promotion, which runs through the draft lottery on May 30.” Each person can “buy up to four seats, though ticketholders will not have the same benefits that regular season ticket purchasers receive.” Those fans will not be able to trade in their tickets and "won't get an invite to the off-the-court events.” The T'Wolves “ran an identical promotion for several years, beginning with the 2008-09 season” (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 5/3).
