Detroit Pistons release preseason schedule

Detroit faces No. 1 pick Ben Simmons on Oct. 15.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Pistons released their preseason schedule, including facing off against No. 1 pick Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers Oct. 15 in Philly.

Other games feature the new-look (and maybe not as sad) Brooklyn Nets, the San Antonio Spurs starting life without Tim Duncan, the flatulent Atlanta Hawks, Greg Monroe and the Milwaukee Bucks and the fearful Toronto Raptors.

Perhaps most crucially, this is your acknowledgement that while Olympic basketball might be all well and good, actual NBA competition starts in just over two months.

The full schedule is below:

Date Opponent Location Time
October 6 at Brooklyn Barclays Center 7:30 p.m.
October 10 San Antonio The Palace 7:30 p.m.
October 13 at Atlanta Philips Arena 7:30 p.m.
October 15 at Philadelphia Wells Fargo Center 7 p.m.
October 17 Milwaukee The Palace 7:30 p.m.
October 19 Toronto The Palace 7:30 p.m.
