NBA Returns to Seattle for Preseason Game, Fuels Sonics Speculation

Jun 24, 2023

Another NBA preseason game will be held this October at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, fueling speculation that an Emerald City expansion team may not be far behind.

The Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz will play October 10 in a preseason matchup branded by the NBA as the Rain City Showcase. Last year’s preseason saw the Clippers play the Portland Trail Blazers in front of a sold-out crowd of 18,440 fans at Climate Pledge Arena, home to the NHL’s Seattle Kraken and WNBA’s Storm.

“Seattle is a world-class sports town, and fans continue to be hungry for NBA basketball,” Climate Pledge Arena GM Steve Mattson said in a statement.
