Preseason's not usually too exciting but this is our first year of basketball in Sacramento where we don't have to worry about whether or not the team is leaving. This will be the first basketball played in Sacramento since the team was sold and relocation to Seattle denied. I can't wait.
There is currently no word on whether or not the preseason games will be televised or not. The Kings haven't televised preseason games at all the last few years, but that was under previous ownership. It's unknown if that will change under Vivek Ranadivé.
The full 2013-14 NBA Schedule will be released on Tuesday, Aug. 6th at 3 PM Pacific.
