Heads up, Sixers fans - tickets on the secondary market will be a bit pricier this season.
On the heels of the second-worst season in franchise history, the 76ers enter the 2016-17 NBA season looking to finally break out of the Eastern Conference cellar. The long-awaited debut of Joel Embiid, alongside the hopeful debut of college sensation Ben Simmons later this season, will give fans newfound reason to attend games at Wells Fargo Center this year, and that excitement is making waves on the secondary ticket market.
On TicketIQ, 76ers tickets during the 2016-17 NBA season are now averaging $111.34 across all 41 home games.
