The Bulls announced their eight-game 2014-15 preseason schedule on Monday afternoon.
Derrick Rose is expected to make his return to the court — in a Bulls uniform — when Chicago hosts the Washington Wizards on Oct. 6 in their preseason opener.
In what should be the marquee game of the preseason, the Bulls will battle LeBron James and the revamped Cleveland Cavaliers at Ohio State University on Oct. 20.
The Bulls will also get a first look at the top two picks of the 2014 NBA Draft when they hit the road to face Jabari Parker and the Milwaukee Bucks on Oct. 11 and then travel to the Scottrade Center in St. Louis on Oct. 24 for a matchup against Andrew Wiggins and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
