The Kings will spend the day after Christmas with the team they faced to close the 2010-11 season.
The Kings will host the Los Angeles Lakers Dec. 26 to open the season, the Los Angeles Times reports.
The Times reports the game against the Kings will be the second of three games in three days for the Lakers, who open their season on Christmas hosting the Chicago Bulls.
The Lakers beat the Kings to end last season in what fans thought was the last NBA game in Sacramento.
The Kings, of course, will be in Sacramento this season while plans to build a new arena are developed.
