The NBA Draft is in the books, free agency is just around the corner, and Summer League action will follow shortly after. Hoops hype is alive and well in Chicago, so let's take a look at when we'll be able to watch the Bulls in action for the first time as they prepare for another season.
The team announced their 2021 preseason schedule earlier this week:
The Bulls will play four preseason games over the span of ten days, beginning with a contest against the Cavaliers at the United Center on October 5.
The Bulls will head to Cleveland five days later to face the Cavs again (October 10), but not before a home game against the New Orleans Pelicans on October 8. Lonzo Ball will most likely be playing in that game, but it will be interesting to see for which team.
The Bulls wrap up their preseason slate with a visit from the Memphis Grizzlies on October 15. All home games will begin at 7 PM CT and the lone road contest will tip off at 6 PM CT.
The 2021-22 NBA regular season will begin on October 19, although the Bulls may have their first game 1-2 days after. Training camp opens for all NBA teams on September 28.
