The National Basketball Association (NBA) announced today that as part of its effort to connect with its fans globally, NBA teams will play five preseason games in four countries this October as part of NBA Global Games 2014.

As part of the schedule, five teams – the Brooklyn Nets, Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, Sacramento Kings, and San Antonio Spurs – will play a series of games in five cities in Brazil, China, Germany, and Turkey.  NBA Global Games will also include regular-season games to be announced at a later date.

Along with the oncourt action, NBA Global Games 2014 will feature a variety of off-the-court activities, including NBA Cares community programs and interactive fan events in each city.  The games will also be supported by a variety of marketing and merchandising partners, and will be available to fans globally on television, digital, and social media.

“As the passion for the game continues to grow globally we are focused on finding unique and meaningful ways to connect with fans worldwide, and the NBA Global Games are part of those efforts,” said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.  “Basketball brings people together across cultural and geographic lines, and these games are a great opportunity for our fans to experience the excitement of the NBA first-hand.”
