The San Antonio Spurs finally return to the AT&T Center for the first time since March for a preseason game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Even though there won’t be a crowd yet, the San Antonio Spurs will be happy to be home Saturday evening. For the first time since winning 119-109 over the Dallas Mavericks on March 10th, the Silver and Black will be returning to the AT&T Center for preseason action against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Though some are non-guaranteed, two-way signings, or camp invites, the Spurs will officially have 18 guys available for their three preseason games. Some guys, however, will likely be sitting as an extra precaution due to previous injuries.

With new draft picks Devin Vassell and Tre Jones joining the mix, Gregg Popovich will likely use the three tune-up games to incorporate some of his younger guys into the fold and figure out everyone’s role.

In what promises to be another unconventional NBA season, preseason action is finally here. Here’s all you need to know about the Saturday night showdown.
