They sent the email out yesterday or the day before. New system in place with ticketmaster/Ticketsnow.
It works through your existing account and you can list your tickets for sale/for charity/fwd them to friend. No minimum or maximum price. Very similar to stubhub's system. But with SH's system the seller pays 15% and the buyer 10%. With the NBAtickets.com system the seller pays 5% and the buyer pays 20%. Prices generally are very similar to stubhub's.
With the new system your tickets can stay for sale right up till one hour before game time. You can choose to have your sales credited to your team account, or you can choose to have them directly deposited to your checking account. There are pluses and minuses to the new system for sure. It all balances out imo though. There will obviously be a lot more undercutting with a fee market in place. The direct deposit option is nice though. I've always thought it ridiculous to have to wait 6+ months to bet get a refund check or to use your "credit".
