Steve Koonin joined Dukes & Bell and talked about the rules in place with the league where trades can’t be completed until the new league year starts.

Koonin said he hopes the rules that don’t allow trades to be completed until the new league year will be addressed soon at the NBA meetings.

 “We have meetings in Vegas during summer league which I’m sure it will be a discussion at.” Koonin said “It’s complex, it’s done for a reason but I think the output of that reason might get changed, maybe though because it was us we’re a little too sensitive.”

Steve told the guys ticket sales have been gone up since the draft.

“Ticket sales are going unbelievably well.” Koonin said “We’ve had our best sales since the 60 win season, they’ve really been exciting because you have a player coming to us who was the best player on the number 1 team in the country, and Cam played at Duke which is a brand.”
