We have dates.

The NBA has finally released its schedule for the upcoming season, and Sixers fans have some dates to circle on the calendar that aren't too far away.

Philadelphia will play in three nationally televised games this season after a three-year drought away from primetime. That's including the season-opener, when they kick off the season on ESPN hosting Russell Westbrook and the Durant-less Thunder at The Center on Oct. 26 at 8 PM. They'll also face-off with Minnesota at the Target Center on Nov. 17 on TNT, and return to ESPN on Dec. 16 when the top two picks in the 2016 NBA Draft, Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram, go head-to-head in Philly.

We're still waiting for word on any NBATV appearances, but three national TV games is a nice bounce-back for the team.

The full schedule can be found on Sixers.com here, with preseason dates up on ESPN.com.
