The 2015 NBA Trade Deadline was the busiest in 25 years. 39 players changed teams on Thursday. The Milwaukee Bucks were part of a three team deal that netted Michael Carter-Williams, Miles Plumlee and Tyler Ennis. The other parts of the trade sent Brandon Knight and Kendall Marshall to the Phoenix Suns and a draft pick to the Philadelphia 76ers. As the Bucks got better and younger, they still remain as one of the best deals in basketball on the secondary market.
Milwaukee has just the 25th highest average ticket price in the NBA on the secondary market. The average price for Bucks tickets on the secondary market is just $80. They are one of only six teams with an average price of $80 or less. This, despite the Bucks’ current seeding as the No. 6 team in the Eastern Conference. Milwaukee is seven games over .500 a season after finishing with a 15-67 record. With 30 wins on the season, the Bucks doubled their 2013-14 win total before the NBA All-Star Game. No team with a less expensive season average has a better record than the Bucks.
Over the final 16 home games during the regular season, Milwaukee will have four with an average price above $100. Three come against Central Division rivals the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Chicago Bulls, while the fourth comes against the Golden State Warriors. The most expensive game will be against Cleveland on March 22. The average price for Bucks vs Cavaliers tickets is $174.30 with a get-in price of $43.
Four remaining games at BMO Harris Bradley Center have an average price below $50. The least expensive of which will be on February 25 against the Philadelphia 76ers. This will be newly acquired Carter-Williams’ first game against his former team. The average price for Sixers vs Bucks tickets is currently $38 with a get-in price of $5.
