The NBA got plenty of global exposure during the Summer Olympics, where USA Basketball took home the gold by sending a team made up of the world’s greatest players to compete, all of whom just happen to be members of the Association.

The league will continue to ride the international wave once its preseason schedule — which was released in its entirety on Thursday — kicks off on October 5, with games scheduled in seven countries outside the U.S. over a span of 19 days.
