The Nets announced their preseason schedule on Wednesday — four games in three arenas but none of them out of state. The preseason will also feature a return to Nassau Coliseum, the Nets home during their last seasons in the ABA and their first season in the NBA.

The Nets will open preseason on October 3 when they will travel to Madison Square Garden to take on the Knicks. That’s the only away for the Brooklyns.

The Nets will round out their preseason slate with three home games, beginning with an October 5 matchup with the Heat and an October 8 tilt with the Knicks at Barclays Center. The preseason concludes with an October 11 contest against the 76ers at the Coliseum. All four games will be played at 7:30 p.m.

No word yet on which games the YES Network will broadcast. MSG broadcasts all the Knick preseason games.

The schedule is the shortest in recent memory. In the past, including last year, the Nets would play six preseason games, one year going as high as eight.
