With the full NBA schedule for the 2015-16 season likely coming out later this month, the Kings offered a teaser with the release of their preseason schedule. Sacramento will be playing just 6 preseason games this year, down from the 7 of previous years.
The full schedule is as follows:
Oct. 5th @ Portland Trail Blazers
Oct. 7th @ Phoenix Suns
Oct. 8th vs. San Antonio Spurs
Oct. 10th vs. Portland Trail Blazers
Oct. 13th @ L.A. Lakers
Oct. 17th @ New Orleans Pelicans
The games against the Lakers and Pelicans will be played at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and Kentucky's Rupp Arena respectively. The Kings-Lakers game in Vegas is an annual tradition, and has led to such magical moments as this:
I'll never get tired of posting that video.
Meanwhile, the final preseason game will be a University of Kentucky reunion tour as the game will feature Wildcats alumni Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo, and recent Kings draft pick Willie Cauley-Stein.
Kings basketball will be back in just over two months! I can't wait.
