It’s finally here! NBA Preseason 2017-18 kicks off with two games on Saturday, September 30th, 2017! Some former University of Kentucky Wildcats could be seen on the floor, so let’s take a look at the two matchups. I’ll be listing the east coast time, national broadcast outlet, and local broadcast outlets for fans who may live in areas served by those stations.
A note about games labeled NBA League Pass: Most television providers do not charge customers for NBALP subscriptions until opening night of the season, which will be October 17th this year. We’ll have to wait and see if any preseason games labeled as NBALP will be viewable by tuning in to their broadcast stations.
Enjoy the games, everyone!

University of Kentucky alumna. DeMarcus Cousins was my gateway into the NBA. Watching former Kentucky Wildcats thrive in the pros is the best.
