The Celtics announced Thursday that their preseason schedule will begin in Turkey, followed by a trip to Italy, as previously reported. That will be followed by a game against the New York Knicks at the XL Center in downtown Hartford before a road game against the Philadelphia 76ers in the more familiar confines of the Wells Fargo Center.
Next up will be a home-and-home with the Brooklyn Nets, including the Celtics' first trip to the new Barclays Center. The Knicks will host another meeting, this one at the Times Union Center in Albany, N.Y., before the Celtics close their preseason schedule at the TD Garden against the Sixers.
Tickets for preseason games go on sale Sept. 13.
