Wizards Preseason Schedule Set
No need to wait until the regular season to excited about the upcoming season for the Washington Wizards. The preseason schedule, which the team just announced, contains several juicy storylines, with games against the Cleveland Cavaliers, former Wizards Coach Eddie Jordan and the Philadelphia 76ers, and Flip Saunders's former team, the Detroit Pistons, highlight the eight-game exhibition schedule.
As reported earlier, the Wizards will open the preseason in Richmond against the Memphis Grizzlies (Oct. 6). They will play one game at Verizon Center against the Dallas Mavericks (Oct. 9), then hit the road for the final six games. The Wizards will head to Toronto to face Hedo Turkoglu, Chris Bosh and the Raptors (Oct. 11) and play back-to-back games in Grand Rapids, Mich., and Cleveland against the Pistons (Oct. 13) and the Cavaliers (Oct. 14). They will take a few days off, then have another back-to-back set against Atlanta (Oct. 19) and Philadelphia (Oct. 20) and conclude against the Chicago Bulls (Oct. 23). That's a serious set of meaningless exhibition games before the Wizards open the regular season against Dallas on Oct. 27.
Also, the Wizards plan to formally introduce Fabricio Oberto during a press conference on Wednesday. It's been almost three weeks since he agreed to a one-year, $1.99 million contract.
