The Sacramento Kings officially announced their preseason schedule this morning and it has a distinct international feel. The team opens their seven-game preseason schedule on the road at the Rogers Center in Vancouver, British Columbia against the Toronto Raptors on Oct. 5 and then the real travel begins.
From Vancouver, the Kings will make a brief return home for another match-up with the Raptors on Oct. 7. After that, they’ll fly to China for a two-game stint against the Brooklyn Nets. Sacramento and Brooklyn will first play at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai on Oct. 11 and then match-up again on Oct. 15 at the MasterCard Center in Beijing.
The Kings will return home for a friendly contest on Oct. 18 in Sacramento against Maccabi Haifa, a professional club from Israel, before traveling to San Antonio to face the world champion Spurs on Oct. 20.
Sacramento will complete their whirlwind tour in Las Vegas on Oct. 24 against the Los Angeles Lakers at the MGM Grand Arena.
