The Washington Wizards announced their slate for the 2016 preseason on Thursday afternoon. Here’s the full schedule:

Date Opponent Location Time TV
October 4 Heat Verizon Center 7:00 pm EST CSN
October 6 76ers Wells Fargo Center (Philadelphia) 7:00 pm EST CSN
October 10 Knicks Madison Square Garden (New York) 7:30 pm EST CSN
October 13 76ers Verizon Center 7:00 pm EST CSN
October 15 Kings Rupp Arena (Lexington, KY) 7:00 pm EST
October 18 Cavaliers Schottenstein Center (Columbus, OH) 7:00 pm EST
October 21 Raptors Verizon Center 7:00 pm EST CSN

The exciting news here is not only do the Wizards get three home games (which is more than they usually get) but five of the team’s seven games will be televised, which is an improvement over previous years.

Unfortunately, the most exciting game on the schedule, John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins’ reunion in Lexington, won’t be on TV. But their games against the 76ers, Knicks, Heat, and Raptors should all prove to be interesting games.
