The Hornets won’t have to wait long to see Kemba Walker again, but fans will have to be patient a bit longer to welcome him back to Charlotte.
Charlotte released its five-game 2019 preseason schedule Thursday and the Hornets will open in Boston against Walker and the Celtics on Oct. 6. In July, the Celtics and Hornets completed a sign-and-trade that exchanged Walker, Charlotte’s all-time leading scorer, for Terry Rozier.
Following the game at Boston, the Hornets host the Heat on Oct. 9 in Charlotte before welcoming the 76ers to Winston-Salem on Oct. 11. Their final home preseason game will be Oct. 16 against the Pistons.
The Hornets will also play a preseason road game against Western Conference opponent Memphis on Oct. 14.
All games will be broadcast on WFNZ.
