LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Los Angeles Lakers have announced that the team will hold their 2015 training camp in Hawaii, returning to the islands for the first time since 2007.

Team president Jeanie Buss made the announcement on Monday.

“Hawaii has been like a second home to the Lakers since my father first took the team there in 1988,” said Buss. “The love and support we've always received from the people in Hawaii has meant so much to us over the years, and we're thrilled to be returning there next fall and seeing so many of our loyal fans.”

In addition to holding their training camp in Honolulu at the University of Hawaii, the Lakers will also play two preseason games at the Stan Sheriff Center, on Oct. 4 and Oct. 6. Information on how to purchase tickets will be announced at a later date.

The Lakers have held training camp in Hawaii 12 times, beginning in 1988 and most recently in 2007.
