The NBA will play regular-season games in Mexico City and London as part of its extended global schedule for next season.

The Milwaukee Bucks will face the New York Knicks at London's O2 Arena on January 15, with the Houston Rockets and Minnesota Timberwolves playing at Mexico City Arena on November 12.

The two games will follow 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.

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