Here's the schedule for the preseason. It looks like Canadian Kelly Olynyk will have a chance to return to his home country a couple of times. But of course all that anyone is talking about is the two games against the Nets. Will Pierce or Garnett play either of them? The last preseason game is always a throw-away game, so there's zero motivation for them to play in the Garden (they'll save their grand return to Boston till the first regular season game in Boston). I'm not sure about the game in Brooklyn though. We'll see.
