The NBA will play a record amount of preseason games in non-NBA Canadian cities. Five teams including the Bulls will play in at least one game in either Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver or Winnipeg.

The Bulls will play the Minnesota Timberwolves in Winnipeg on Oct. 10.

None of the players on the Bulls’ current roster are from Canada, but the Timberwolves have two — Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett are from Toronto.

Wiggins and Bennett were both former No. 1 overall picks, and they have a large fan following in Canada.

The Latest
The Bears aren’t panicking as the All-Pro linebacker’s “hold in” reached 13 days and 10 practices — and they probably don’t have to. In the midst of a rebuild, the Bears aren’t one player away from anything — not even Roquan Smith.
Andrew Vaughn’s homer was one of 15 hits for White Sox.
Jesus Luzardo and two Miami relievers combined to hold the Cubs to two hits.
Maurice D. Hart Jr., 27, was shot in the chest while standing in the 2800 block of West Wilcox Street.
Other than a future Hall of Famer at QB, six straight division titles and an excellent chance to win another Super Bowl, what do the Chiefs have that the Bears don’t?
