Bucks announce preseason schedule

The Milwaukee Bucks released their preseason schedule Friday, a seven-game slate which includes three games in the state of Wisconsin.

Jason Kidd and the Bucks open their preseason schedule against the Memphis Grizzlies on Oct. 8 at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wis., the third straight season Milwaukee has played an exhibition game at the arena adjacent to Lambeau Field.

The Bucks will then travel to Detroit to face the Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Oct. 9 before returning home to take on the Chicago Bulls for the 38th annual MAAC Fund Game at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Oct. 11.

What was once thought to be a battle between the top two picks in last June’s draft now will be Milwaukee’s first look at LeBron James, Kevin Love and the new-look Cavaliers, as the Bucks play a preseason game in Cleveland on Oct. 14.

The Bucks will face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Oct. 17 at U.S. Cellular Arena in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Following a trip to New York to play the Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Oct. 20, Milwaukee wraps up the preseason against the Timberwolves at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Oct. 22.
