London Calling 🇬🇧

The Knicks were last in London for a regular season game against Milwaukee Bucks in 2015 (report here), while it will be the first time in London for the Wizards – who feature 5-time NBA All-Star, John Wall.
“It will be an honour to represent the Washington Wizards organisation as we play our first game in the UK,” said Wall. “I look forward to connecting with our fans in London and using the experience to further bond as a team.”
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said: “We’ve been playing regular-season match-ups in London for nearly a decade, and over that time the games and the surrounding festivities have grown into the equivalent of an NBA All-Star experience transported to Europe.
“Fans and partners from across the continent come to celebrate basketball and enjoy the excitement and experience of an NBA game.”
