The Cavaliers will host the Milwaukee Bucks on Oct. 9 in a presason game at the Canton Civic Center, the team announced Wednesday. The Civic Center is home to the Charge, the Cavs' Development League team.
They tried hosting a preseason game there last year, but it was wiped out by the lockout. It will be the first NBA game ever played in Canton. Charge season ticket holders will have the Cavs preseason game included in their package for free.
"This is an exciting situation for us to be able to bring a Cavaliers preseason game to Canton and continue to build and develop the deeper, long term relationship we want to have with our fans here and the community at large," Cavs President Len Komoroski said in a statement.
No other preseason games have been released yet.
