Amidst reports that the team is willing to trade top draft pick Nik Stauskas, the Sacramento Kings seem to be seeking frontcourt help for big man and franchise star DeMarcus Cousins. The Kings again find themselves in the no-name section of the Western Conference and own a 16-22 record through mid-January. Alongside another blundering start, ticket prices on the secondary market remain relatively inexpensive.
The average price for Kings tickets on TicketIQ is $92.74, which is 18.8% cheaper than their $114.29 average at the beginning of the season. The team’s most expensive game will be played against the Lakers on April 13. Kings vs Lakers tickets own a secondary average of $151 and the get-in price of $68.
They’ll play their cheapest game against the struggling Nets on January 21. The average price for Kings vs Nets tickets is $62.71 on the secondary market. The get-in price starts at $17. The Nets currently own the final playoff spot in the East, though their losing ways may quickly oust them from contention come April.
It’s not likely that the Kings will be playing postseason basketball this year, where they have failed to enter since the 2005-06 season. Just six games under .500, however, they do have the opportunity to post their first winning record in nine years, which is something they can hang their hat on as they continue to rebuild at the Sleep Train Arena.
