Detroit Pistons To Play Minnesota Timberwolves In First-Ever NBA Canada Series

On Tuesday afternoon, the Detroit Pistons announced via the organization's official Twitter account that the club will be participating in the first-ever NBA Canada Series when they travel to Winnipeg to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The game is tentatively scheduled to take place at 6 p.m. on Oct. 24 at the MTS Centre, which is the home to the NHL's Winnipeg Jets.

In addition to the game in Winnipeg, there will also be an NBA preseason game played in Montreal, which marks the first time games are being held in Canada as part of the NBA's preseason schedule.

This will mark the third time in Pistons franchise history that the club will play a preseason game outside of the United States, as they participated in a game in Mexico City in 1995 and Puerto Rico in 2006.
