Saints Customers Get Early Hornets Seat Choice

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - On the heels of the Hornets' lottery luck, the club's union with the NFL's New Orleans Saints is taking shape in the area of ticket promotions. Saints season ticket holders are being offered a chance to select season seats for Hornets games before they are offered to the general public. The NFL club made the announcement in an email to its approximately 70,000 season ticket holders on Thursday. In April, Saints owner Tom Benson agreed to buy the Hornets for $338 million. On Wednesday night, the Hornets won the first overall pick in the NBA's draft lottery, opening the way for the club to select Kentucky star Anthony Davis in the June 28 draft. Last season, the Hornets sold about 10,000 season tickets in the 18,000-seat New Orleans Arena.
