A day after the NBA released its complete regular-season schedule, the Orlando Magic released its preseason schedule. The eight-game slate kicks off on October 5th with a visit to Hidalgo, Texas to face the Houston Rockets, and continues with the opening of the new Amway Center on October 10th--that's rendered 10-10-10, by the way--against the New Orleans Hornets. The final game will take place against the Miami Heat in Tampa.
