The Grizzlies have announced their 2016 preseason schedule, and it's not that much different from years past, except it's a six game schedule now:

  • October 3 - vs. Orlando Magic
  • October 6 - vs. Atlanta Hawks
  • October 11 - vs. Philadelphia 76ers
  • October 13 - @ OKC Thunder (played in Tulsa)
  • October 15 - at Houston Rockets
  • October 19 - at Minnesota Timberwolves

From what I understand, the Grizzlies are bound by their FedExForum lease to play more than 41 home games a year, so that limits the number of preseason games they're able to play at places that aren't the Forum. If they want to play a preseason game somewhere else, they've pretty much got to find another team willing to be the home team and host the game.

Hard to believe we've already got preseason schedules, but it'll probably also be the last real Grizzlies news for a while now that free agency is all over but the shouting (except for Lance Stephenson, I guess).
