The struggling Charlotte Bobcats, who finished with the lowest winning percentage in NBA history and then failed to land the top pick in the NBA Draft lottery on Wednesday, are using a ticket deal to try to drum up support.

Fans who purchase season tickets for the 2012-13 season will receive season tickets for the 2013-14 season for free, according to a report by CBS Sports' Ben Golliver. The team is offering the deal on upper-level tickets at prices that range from $537.50 for corner seats to $732.50 for center court seats, Golliver reports.

This season, Charlotte was the third-worst team in the league at filling its stadium. The team averaged only 14,757 fans at home games.
