NBA Tickets: 10 Teams With Tickets For $2 or Less

0 of 8

    Buyer Beware: Buying on the Secondary Market can be a MUCH cheaper alternativeRobert Cianflone/Getty Images

    You might be paying too much for NBA Tickets. 

    Next time you are about to buy directly from the NBA team, take a look on the secondary market for a better deal. 

    Currently, there are 874 NBA Tickets available on Stubhub for less than $2.

    How does this happen?

    Almost every NBA team cuts deals with ticket brokers. In exchange for giving brokers access to premium games (games against the Heat, Lakers and Celtics), they force them to also buy non-marquee games (Nets, Cavs, Wolves, etc).

    Since those games rarely sell out, brokers are forced to list their inventory for a fraction of the face value cost. 

    You should be taking advantage!
