Wizards to play preseason game against Hornets in South Carolina

While we wait for the NBA schedule’s release sometime in August, the Wizards’ preseason itinerary is slowly taking shape.

The Wizards’ preseason schedule will include a visit to Greenville, S.C., to face the Charlotte Hornets on Oct. 10. at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. A person with knowledge of the plans confirmed the location and date.

Earlier this month, Jacksonville, Fla., Mayor Alvin Brown announced his city will host a Pelicans-Wizards game Oct. 8 at the Veterans Memorial Arena.

Last year, the Wizards played seven exhibition games between Oct. 8 and Oct. 23 — two at Verizon Center, one in Baltimore, and the remainder on the road or at a neutral site.

And like last year, the team doesn’t plan on announcing their exhibition schedule until after the NBA reveals the regular season schedule.
