Darko & Arroyo join and meet the team in Cleveland after the break. The team is meeting there rather than gathering in Orlando first.
From a ticket sales perspective it's all Arroyo. There are 400,000 Puerto Ricans in Orlando and the phone is ringing off the hook for tickets to see him play including lots of group inquiries.
One of the guys in the ticket office was recently hired after working for the Pistons. He is telling everyone that Darko has quick feet, decent ball handling and a nice shot in practices.
Just as we are, everyone in the office is waiting to see what the team does with Francis. They have been told that nothing will happen until after this weekend. (He thinks there is an NBA moratorium on trades to keep the focus on the All Star activities.)
And there are plenty of tickets available for every remaining game this year.
