They are staying in market though, so the title's misleading. I'm surprised they aren't planning on playing in the new big arena in Tulsa.

Attendance is the problem...

My aunt & uncle used to live in Bixby, and it was a pretty rural place. Just as they were moving out, it was getting developed...I hope they do well there!

This might work out really well for them. From what I've read it's about the perfect size for a D-League team and sometimes it's easier to get families to go to the burbs so they can do stuff before or after the game. I wonder what the rent is compared to downtown.

I still think Tulsa is a tough market no matter where you play.... you have Tulsa and Oral Roberts to compete with, plus OU and OSU on television..... I would of thought a move to Witchita Falls would of been a better move for them....

What is a good attendance in the D-League?

I was also trying to find out what the D-League needs to break even in the average market??


Thanks

3000 plus is a good average...... It depends on the arena deal for the break even point but if I had to guess it would be in the 1,800-2,400 depending on the sponsorship, and arena deal.....
