Despite the lack of progress in labor talks, the NBA released its preseason schedule on Thursday afternoon. If a new collective bargaining agreement is in place in time, the Nets will play six preseason games, beginning with a game against the 76ers on Oct. 13 at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton.
