Three Euroleague teams will be playing in the NBA preseason this year, including the Los Angeles Lakers playing a game against FC Barcelona. The game between the Lakers and FC Barcelona will take place on October 18 at the Staples Center.
FC Barcelona, which is the major basketball team in Spain, will see a familiar face on the Lakers. Pau Gasol played for FC Barcelona before he came to the NBA in 2001. This will be the first game FC Barcelona has ever played in the United States.
