The Los Angeles Lakers 2015-2016 preseason has been officially released, laying out what may be the first full look at their top-five player and revamped roster. The Lakers are back to Hawaii for training camp, so they'll open up with two games in Honolulu against the Utah Jazz. The first game of the preseason is Oct. 4 at 6 p.m. PT against the Jazz.
Aside from that they'll hit their normal preseason stomping grounds. On Oct. 8 they return to Ontario, CA. to face the Toronto Raptors. Another interesting note is they'll line up against international competition this time around. Maccabi Haifa -- an Israeli basketball club -- play the Lakers at Staples Center on Oct. 11.
The Lakers will then head out to Las Vegas to face the Sacramento Kings on Oct. 13. They'll travel down the Pacific coast to San Diego for a game against the Golden State Warriors before returning to the greater Los Angeles area for their final two exhibition games. The Portland Trail Blazers (Oct. 19, Los Angeles) and and Warriors (Oct. 22, Anaheim) wrap up what is hopefully an exciting look at a new Lakers squad.
