NBA Teams To Play Just Two Preseason Games Each

Tuesday November 29th, 2011

The NBA will have just 16-day training camps and two preseason games per team as a result of the NBA labor dispute, reports.

The 16-day training camps are tentatively scheduled to begin Dec. 9, during which time the teams may sign free agents and prepare for the regular season, which is slated to begin on Christmas day.

Each team will play just two preseason games during the same 16-day span. It is expected that the teams will play against those teams closest to them geographically. Teams are traditionally scheduled to play between 8-10 preseason games before the beginning of a standard NBA season.
