“We look forward to visiting Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum,” said Hornets President & Vice Chairman Fred Whitfield. “We have always enjoyed bringing Hornets basketball to our fans in the Triad, where the fans are so supportive of our G League affiliate, the Greensboro Swarm. We are pleased to have the opportunity to do so in Winston-Salem this preseason."
Along with a 2007 contest that was hosted by New Orleans, Charlotte previously hosted preseason games at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum in 1988 and 1992. The team has also played nine preseason contests at the Greensboro Coliseum.
The remainder of the Hornets preseason schedule will be announced at a later date.
