Utah Jazz hosting teams from Australia, Israel and Arizona in five-game preseason

SALT LAKE CITY — The Jazz have never hosted an international team during preseason action. But in 2017 they will host two.

The Sydney Kings (Oct. 2) and Maccabi Haifa (Oct. 4) will help the Jazz breaking the currently-being-renovated Vivint Arena for the first two games of the team’s preseason.

The Kings play in Australia’s NBL while Maccabi play in the Israeli Basketball Super League.

The Jazz will also host the Phoenix Suns (Oct. 6) before returning the favor three days later at Talking Stick Resort Arena. The team finishes up its preseason at the Staples Center against the Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 10.

The regular season schedule has yet to be released.
