LeBron James and the new look Cleveland Cavaliers will make their lone visit to Oklahoma City on Thursday, Dec. 11.
In addition to James being back in a Cavs uniform, Cleveland also is expected to have Kevin Love on its roster following an impending trade later this month. Along with point guard and reigning All-Star Game MVP Kyrie Irving, the Cavs are considered to be forming a similar "Big Three" to the one in which James journeyed to four straight NBA Finals as a member of the Miami Heat.
CBSSports.com first reported Cleveland's scheduled visit.
The NBA will release its league-wide schedule later Wednesday.
A few other marquee dates include Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers again making two trips to Oklahoma City this season, the first on Sunday, Feb. 8. They'll return Wednesday, March 11.
The Thunder and Clippers split last year's four-game series, with each team winning once on the other's home court. The two teams later met in the Western Conference Semifinals, with Oklahoma City eventually winning the series in six games.
Derrick Rose is scheduled to take the court inside Chesapeake Energy Arena again for the first time in four seasons when his Chicago Bulls make their only appearance on Sunday, March 15. Rose has played in only 10 games over the past two seasons due to knee injuries, and been limited to just 49 contests over the past three seasons. He missed the game against the Thunder in Oklahoma City in the 2011-12 season because of a groin injury.
The last time Rose played inside Chesapeake Energy Arena was Oct. 27, 2010, the opener of the 2010-11 season. He went on to win the league's Most Valuable Player award that season, averaging 25 points, 4.4 rebounds and 7.7 assists. He played in 81 games and led the Bulls to a league-best 62-20 record.
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, the electric duo that has been dubbed "The Splash Brothers," will come to town with Golden State on Sunday, Nov. 23.
The Thunder went 2-1 against the Warriors last year, and the teams assembled three of the best games of the 2013-14 season.
In the first meeting, Golden State won, 116-115, on its home floor when Andre Iguodala hit a baseline fadaeway as time expired. His shot came moments after Russell Westbrook buried a 3-pointer to put the Thunder ahead by one with 2.3 second remaining.
Two weeks later, in Oklahoma City, Westbrook returned the favor by knocking down an improbable corner 3-pointer with one-tenth of a second showing to lift the Thunder to a 113-112 overtime victory.
In the final meeting, on Jan. 17, Kevin Durant erupted for a career-high 54 points, making three 3-pointers in a 75-second span to power the Thunder to a 127-121 win. Durant's performance made Curry's 37-point, 11-assist effort an afterthought.
The Oklahoman reported on Tuesday that the Thunder will play at San Antonio on Christmas Day, a game scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Oklahoma City also will open the season at Portland on Wednesday, Oct. 29 and play its home opener against Denver on Saturday, Nov. 1.
The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday that the Thunder will play the Clippers on Oct. 30. It will be the Clippers' home opener and the second night of a back-to-back for the Thunder.
The schedule is subject to change until the NBA officially releases all the dates Wednesday.
