The Nets will reportedly hold Media Day in Brooklyn on September 27, then fly to San Diego for the opening of camp the next day. From there, it’s a short ride up to Staples Center for the October 3 opener vs. the NBA’s other “Big Three,” LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis.

The NBA has yet to release its regular season schedule. It is expected in the next week or so.
