“They wanted to get the best available option, and they nailed it,” coach Luke Walton told KXTV in Sacramento.
The arrangement for the swanky private jet was organized by team owner Vivek Ranadive.
“Vivek definitely pushed to get us a better plane, and he did that, so we’re very grateful to have an owner like that,” said player De’Aaron Fox.
The team will take off on Monday for the 20-hour flight, TMZ reports, before arriving in Mumbai for pre-season games against the Indiana Pacers on Friday and Saturday.
