Not much is expected of the Knicks this season, but that has not prevented tickets to their games from being among the most costly on the secondary market.

Entering Wednesday night’s opener against the Hawks at Madison Square Garden, the Knicks rank third in the NBA – behind only the Warriors and Lakers – in average asking price, according to TicketIQ.com.

The site, which monitors the resale market, said Knicks home games for 2018-19 average a list price of $285, which is up slightly from last season but down from $314 in 2016-17.

The Nets rank sixth in the NBA at an average of $212.

The two most expensive games on the Knicks’ schedule are the visits by the Lakers (in March) and Warriors (next Friday), both of which top $500.

TickPick, another secondary market site, calculated each team's “cost per win” based on preseason over/under victory projections by a major sports book and average ticket cost.

The Knicks finished last in that category with fans paying an average of $510.26 per projected victory. The second-highest such figure was the Lakers at $431.79. The league average is $136.81.
