When the Chicago Bulls entered the National Basketball Assn. in 1966 as the first expansion team of the modern era, the team paid a $1.2-million franchise fee.

The Seattle SuperSonics and San Diego Rockets paid $1.75 million to join the NBA the following year, and it cost the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns $2 million to get into the league in 1968.
