The Sixers have a schedule for the next season, now all they need is a set of keys to end the lockout.

Assuming labor peace is reached between the owners and the NBA Players Association — a large assumption, to be sure — the Sixers will open the 2011-12 campaign at Toronto on Wednesday, Nov. 2. The home-opener is two nights later against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Sixers visit defending-champion Dallas on Nov. 22 and host the Mavericks on Feb. 17.

The Miami Heat, the most celebrated runners-up since 1948 presidential candidate Thomas Dewey, are in town on Feb. 13 and March 16. The Sixers travel to Miami on Nov. 20 and, in the season-finale, April 18.

The league is currently mired in a work stoppage that already has players examining playing options in Europe. Many have contract clauses that would allow them to rejoin the NBA once the lockout is lifted.
