The Kings and Golden State Warriors have scheduled a preseason game next season in Seattle, according to multiple league sources. The Oct. 6 meeting between Northern California teams will be the first NBA game in the Key Arena since the Sonics moved to Oklahoma City after the 2007-08 season and became the Thunder. The surprising development is sure to generate a tremendous amount of interest – and conflicted emotions – given the history of both teams in Seattle. Warriors All-Star Kevin Durant made his NBA debut as a member of the Sonics before spending the ensuing eight seasons with the Thunder. The veteran forward signed with the Warriors – who are hosting the game – as a free agent in the 2016 offseason.
