The Los Angeles Lakers will play an exhibition game at the San Diego Sports Arena Oct. 21 against the Golden State Warriors, the team announced today as it unveiled its exhibition schedule which also includes games in London and Barcelona, Spain.
The Lakers have been scheduled to play an exhibition game in San Diego each year since 1999. The 2006 game was canceled because of the wildfires burning throughout San Diego County. The Lakers made a $100,000 donation to the American Red Cross to assist with relief efforts.
The San Diego exhibition game annually serves as a homecoming for Lakers forward Luke Walton, a University of San Diego High School graduate.
