Nets Seeking Bargain Shoppers in Suite Sales

The sales pitch would have been so much sweeter if LeBron had taken his talents in another direction.

Inside a midtown Manhattan office atop Bruce Ratner's Times Building, Nets sales people are offering not a superstar but bargain rates for Barclays Center suites.

While suites at Madison Square Garden, Citi Field and Yankee Stadium go for as much as $1 million a year, some smaller but similarly placed suites at Barclays will go for between $215,000 and $425,000.  The target: small businesses, particularly in Brooklyn.  So far, only 35 of the 104 suites have been sold, a number that's barely moved in the last few years.  Although the Nets can't offer LeBron James, they are offering prospects road trips on the Nets'  team plane.
