Nuggets, Warriors to play exhibition in Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors will play a preseason game in Des Moines, Iowa in October.

The Iowa Events Center announced Thursday that the Nuggets and Warriors will square off at Wells Fargo Arena on Oct. 16. It will be the first NBA exhibition game staged in the 9-year-old arena, which is home to the Iowa Energy of the NBA's D-League.

Warriors forward Harrison Barnes will likely be the event's top draw. Barnes, along with former Creighton star Doug McDermott, won back-to-back state title in Wells Fargo Arena while playing for nearby Ames High.

The Nuggets and Warriors also played an exhibition game in Des Moines in 1993 at the old Veterans Memorial Auditorium.
