Per ChicagoBusiness.com, it looks like the pockets of ticket holders will get a bit of a reprieve for next season:

Bulls season-ticket holders this week are receiving renewal notices notifying them that, for the first time since the 2010-11 season, the price of admission at the United Center isn't going up.

Prices for season-ticket holders once again next year will range from $42 per game for the cheapest seats in the 300-level to $260 per game for 100-level seats along the sidelines.

The average Bulls ticket price rose by 28 percent to $82.33 between 2010 and 2015, according to Team Marketing Report. Tickets in most section this season went up by $10 or $15 per game.

The price freeze comes in the wake of the Bulls missing postseason play for the first time since 2008.

As mentioned in the article, this comes as a bit of a surprise, mainly because the Bulls did not receive any playoff revenue this season.

At the same time, they did receive a bit of financial help due to Thibs being hired by Minnesota. The money still owed to him was offset by the hire.

Though missing out on playoff revenue stings, please don't forget: the Bulls are still financial champs.
