WHITE PLAINS, August 22, 2016 – The Westchester Knicks, the official NBA Development League affiliate of the New York Knickerbockers, will tip-off its third season at the historic Westchester County Center in White Plains, NY on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 5:00 p.m., facing the Greensboro Swarm, the Charlotte Hornets’ new affiliate. The team will open the season on the road on Saturday, Nov. 12 at 7:00 p.m. against the Delaware 87ers, the Philadelphia 76ers’ affiliate.

The Westchester Knicks will host each of the three newest NBA Development League teams twice. The Greensboro Swarm return to Westchester on Saturday, Feb. 25 following the team’s home opener. The Windy City Bulls, the Chicago Bulls’ affiliate, will visit for a back-to-back match-up on Friday, Feb. 3 and Saturday, Feb 4. Fans will be able to catch the newest New York basketball rivalry when the Long Island Nets, the Brooklyn Nets’ affiliate, visit on Thursday, March 16 and close the regular season on Saturday, April 1.

Of the 24 home games at the Westchester County Center, 14 are scheduled to take place on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. This year’s schedule also includes the team’s annual School Day game on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 11:00 a.m. A full list of promotions, giveaways, and theme nights will be available soon.

Prior to the 24-game regular season, Westchester will participate in one preseason game at home, with the match-up to be announced at a later date. MSG Networks will be telecasting Westchester Knicks games again this season and all games are also broadcast live on YouTube.

The 2016-17 Westchester Knicks will be led once again by head coach Mike Miller, who guided last season’s team to its first-ever playoffs appearance following a 28-22 record during the regular season. New York Knicks assistant general manager and legend Allan Houston returns for his third season as the Westchester Knicks’ general manager. Under his leadership, the team has had three players receive an NBA Call-Up (Langston Galloway, New York Knicks; Jimmer Fredette, New Orleans Pelicans and New York Knicks; Thanasis Antetokounmpo, New York Knicks) while two NBA players have been sent to Westchester on assignment (Cleanthony Early, New York Knicks; Damien Inglis, Milwaukee Bucks).
