The Heat and Magic will play in the Yum! Center

Two of the very few teams in the NBA without a former UK player on the roster will travel to Kentucky for an exhibition game next season (because that makes sense) when the Miami Heat and the Orlando Magic meet in the KFC Yum! Center. Last year, the Heat were in town to play Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans.

The game is set for 7 p.m. on October 7th in Louisville. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on May 29 at the Yum! Center box office or through Ticketmaster.

Who knows, maybe one of those teams will have a Wildcat by the time the game rolls around. Willie Cauley-Stein is an option for Orlando at No. 5 and the Heat could take Devin Booker.

    No more exhibition games for me! the good players rarely ever participate. I will spend my money on the regular season and playoff’s.

    I went to the last one with my son. It was treated as a Heat home game with mascots, DJ, announcer and cheerleaders from the Heat. Problem was it was big crowd but they were not there to see the Heat. I think the Heat now thinks they have a huge following in Louisville and scheduled another game. I won’t be going back. The stars did not play much if at all. Still would love for Louisville to get a pro team however.
