The Detroit Pistons‘ preseason schedule will include almost as many national television appearances as the regular season slate.
The four-game exhibition schedule, released Thursday, begins on Oct. 4 at the New York Knicks on TNT.
In the regular season, the Pistons have three national TV shots, two on NBA TV (including the international game against the Bulls in Paris).
Cade Cunningham and the Pistons also travel to New Orleans to play Zion Williamson and the Pelicans on Oct. 7 in a battle of former No. 1 overall picks.
