The Oklahoma City Thunder announced their 2017 preseason schedule on Aug. 4. There will be only four preseason games this season, the lowest since the lockout shortened season of 2011-12.

The Thunder will play only two games at Chesapeake Energy Arena, one in Tulsa at the BOK Center and will play the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center.

The first game will be in Tulsa against the Houston Rockets on Oct. 3. They’ll be back in Oklahoma City on Oct. 6 to take on the New Orleans Pelicans.

On Oct. 8, the Thunder will welcome in Austrailia’s NBL team, Melbourne United at the Peake. This will be the third time in franchise history Oklahoma City will host a preseason game vs. an international opponent.

Oklahoma City concludes their preseason schedule with a trip to the Mile High City to play the Nuggets on Oct. 10.

So, that’s four games in a week and the NBA schedule is set to tip-off on Oct. 17.

All games will be on the WWLS the Sports Animal (98.1 in OKC and 97.1 in Tulsa). The Thunder will broadcast only the Denver game on FS Oklahoma, leaving the other three available on the Thunder app or online at
