Nets' preseason schedule set

The Nets' preseason will be busy and have an international flair to it.

Brooklyn announced its six-game schedule, which includes an opener against Maccabi Tel Aviv at Barclays Center and a two-game trip to China against Sacramento. The Nets will close their preseason with three games (Boston, Philadelphia and Boston) in four days.

However, the Nets won't play against the Knicks for the second straight preseason.

It remains to be seen how much Deron Williams and Brook Lopez will participate during the preseason. With both coming off surgeries, the team is likely to be cautious with its two young stars.
