Article Summary:

Walker will make his return to Boston alongside Evan Fournier, who also joined the New York Knicks this offseason, on Dec. 18.

The schedule was released on ESPN’s The Jump, which earlier this week revealed the league’s Christmas Day slate and national television schedule for the opening week of the season, which begins Oct. 19.

All teams are scheduled for 82 games this season, the first time they will play a full slate since the 2018-19 season due to the coronavirus pandemic. The final day of the regular season is April 10, when all 30 teams are scheduled to play. One week later, on March 6, the Suns go to Milwaukee for a rematch of the NBA Finals against the Bucks, along with the Nets going to Boston to play the Celtics.

DeMar DeRozan will go back to San Antonio with his new team, the Bulls, on Jan. 28, while his new teammate, Lonzo Ball, will go back to New Orleans for the first time March 24.

The top two picks in this year’s NBA draft, the Pistons’ Cade Cunningham and the Rockets’ Jalen Green, will meet for the first time in Houston on Nov. 10 on ESPN, with the other meeting coming in Detroit on Dec. 18.

The travel schedule has been reduced this season, as teams on average will travel about 43,000 miles, which would be a record low for a 30-team, 82-game season.
