    HOUSTON – The Houston Rockets announced their 2016 preseason schedule today, highlighted by their participation in NBA Global Games China 2016 presented by Master Kong. All seven of the Rockets preseason games will be broadcasted by ROOT SPORTS.

    The Rockets will play New Orleans in Shanghai on Sunday, Oct. 9 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, followed by a rematch with the Pelicans in Beijing on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at The LeSports Center. This marks the Rockets first visit to Shanghai since playing the inaugural NBA game in China on Oct. 14, 2004.

    Prior to departing for China, the Rockets will play a pair of home games at Toyota Center on Sunday, Oct. 2 vs. the Shanghai Sharks and Tuesday, Oct. 4 vs. New York. The Sharks are owned by Rockets legend and soon to be inducted Hall of Famer Yao Ming. Rockets forward Michael Beasley played for the Sharks in 2014-15.

    Upon returning from China, the Rockets will host Memphis at Toyota Center on Saturday, Oct. 15 before closing out their remaining preseason schedule at Dallas on Wednesday, Oct. 19 and at San Antonio on Friday, Oct. 21.

    When is Media Day? I'm assuming they get (about) 1 week before their first game.

    for everyone who doesn't think preseason matters....

    remember last year when they looked out of synch in preseason and everyone kept saying "its only preseason..."

    it was actually very telling about how they would play during the regular season. i want to see them be competitive, and look like they have some sort of plan they're trying to stick to. honestly, if they just show those 2 things they have a shot at another playoff appearance.

    Have they released the training camp schedule?

    All I could find is ORL starts theirs on Sept 27th. I think we get to start ours before other teams, due to Intl game schedules...like last year.

    fwiw: Looks like there could be an entire week of camp between the start and expiration of DMo's Qualifying Offer.

    You really should try to understand Asian's name first before acting like a comedian.
