The two regular-season games will follow the NBA global preseason games in October that will feature five teams -- Brooklyn, Cleveland, Miami, Sacramento and San Antonio -- playing a series of games in Brazil, China, Germany and Turkey.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says, "These regular-season games will bring the excitement and incredible competition of our league to more fans in Europe and Latin America."
