Preseason alert: Bulls vs. Cavs in Buckeye country
The Bulls have not yet released their preseason schedule. But Cleveland did on Friday and it features a game against the Bulls on Monday, Oct. 20 in Columbus, Ohio at the Schottenstein Center.
This is relatively late in preseason, so fans may get a reasonably good look at the expected Cavs trio of LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving playing together.
The Cavaliers are playing LeBron's old team, the Miami Heat, on Oct. 11 in Rio de Janeiro.
The Bulls will also get a chance to check on No. 1 draft pick Andrew Wiggins with Minnesota. The Bulls will face the Timberwolves on Oct. 24 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
Here are two more known fact about the Bulls preseason schedule: They don't play Indiana and tickets are available for an Oct. 7 game against the Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The whole thing should be out soon.
The NBA's regular season schedule should be released in about a week. It always comes out later during big free-agent summers, because the league is waiting to see which teams to feature on national television. Hello, Cleveland.
