Charlotte, NC August 15, 2013 – The Charlotte Bobcats today announced their 2013-14 preseason schedule, which is highlighted by a pair of previously-announced regional home games and the team’s annual Cool School Field Trip.
The eight-game slate opens with a regional home game in Asheville, NC, against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday, Oct. 8 and also includes a regional home game in Greensboro, NC, on Saturday, Oct. 19 against the Dallas Mavericks.
