The Wizards have released their 2015 preseason schedule on Thursday. Here is the complete list:

DATE OPPONENT LOCATION TIME (ET)
Tuesday, Oct. 6 Philadelphia 76ers Verizon Center (Washington, DC) 7 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 9 New York Knicks Verizon Center (Washington, DC) 7 p.m.
Sunday, Oct. 11 Bauru (Brazil) Verizon Center (Washington, DC) 6 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 16 at Philadelphia 76ers Wells Fargo Center, (Philadelphia, PA) 7 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 17 at Milwaukee Bucks BMO Harris Bradley Center (Milwaukee, WI) 8:30 p.m.
Wednesday, Oct. 21 at Miami Heat AmericanAirlines Arena (Miami, FL) 8 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 23 at Toronto Raptors Bell Centre (Montreal, Quebec) 7:30 p.m.

The schedule begins with three consecutive games at home. That home stand concludes with a match against Bauru of the Novo Basquete Brasil League. Bauru won the 2015 FIBA Americas League title.

The remaining games will be on the road against a number of Eastern Conference opponents including the Bucks and Raptors, who made the playoffs last season. The Raptors, as you are aware, were swept by D.C. in the first round of the playoffs last season so that October 23 match in Montreal will be interesting to see.

The Wizards won't be traveling to Asia, Europe, or college campuses. In fact, they aren't playing any NBA team that has a decent shot to make the Conference Finals this season. But if nothing else, it should give us an early glimpse into how the rotation could look like on opening day, which is on Wednesday, October 28 vs. the Orlando Magic.
