The team's final preseason match against the defending champion Toronto Raptors will be hosted by Nassau Coliseum on October 18.

The trip to China will be the franchise's third this decade, as Brooklyn played in Beijing and Guangzhou in 2010, and in Beijing and Shanghai in 2014.

This will make the first time since 2015 that the Nets and Knicks did not face off in the preseason.
