SEATTLE, Wash. — The NBA is returning to Seattle.

The league is sending the Portland Trailblazers and the Los Angeles Clippers to Climate Pledge Arena on October 3rd. The two teams will face off in their third preseason game.

It’s the first time Seattle has hosted an NBA game since 2018 when the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings played in Key Arena. Kevin Durant, who was originally drafted by the Seattle Supersonics, sported his Sonics jersey before the game.

This year’s game has been labeled as the “Rain City Showcase.”

Tickets for the event will go on sale in July on Ticketmaster. You can get them here.
