The Warriors will travel to China as part of the 2013 NBA Global Games and host a pair of home games at Oracle Arena as part of a seven-game preseason schedule leading up to opening night, the team announced Thursday.

The Warriors' trip to China will begin in Beijing, where the team faces the Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 15 at the arena which was home to the basketball competition at the 2008 Summer Olympics. The two teams will then travel to Shanghai to meet again on Oct. 18.

This season will mark the second time the Warriors have traveled to China, previously having made the trek in 2008.

Golden State's two home preseason games at Oracle Arena are set for Oct. 7 against the Sacramento Kings and Oct. 24 against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Warriors will also play a neutral-site game against the Lakers in Ontario and road games against the Utah Jazz on Oct. 8 and Kings on Oct. 23.

Training camp opens Sept. 28.

The Warriors announced their regular-season schedule earlier this week, with the team landing 17 national-TV appearances in the wake of last season's riveting run to the Western Conference semifinals.
