Deron Williams’ Tweet Helped Sell 500 New Season Tickets for the Brooklyn Nets

DWill confirmed via Twitter last night that he’ll be re-signing with the Nets (the deal is for 5 years at about $98 million), and that was very good news for the new Brooklyn team’s bottom line. Reports the NY Daily News: “Barclays Center sold roughly 500 new season tickets on Tuesday, turning in a one-day, seven-figure haul, according to Brett Yormark, the CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. It’s the best day Yormark could remember in his seven years with the Nets, and perhaps record-breaking. It came on the day Williams decided to return and a day after the Nets secured six-time All-Star Joe Johnson in a trade that won’t be official until July 11. Now if they can somehow land [Dwight] Howard from the Magic. ‘We’re seeing a tremendous response to what right now is what-if scenarios, but also to a team that is finally taking shape,’ Yormark said.”

    I’m surprised the JayZ link, the move to Brooklyn and the singing of Joe Johnson wasn’t enough to move the needle. Wow! The NBA has so many hot tickets, these superstar teams are piling up.
