Miami is scheduled to play December 9 versus the Brooklyn Nets, the second half of the two-game regular-season fiesta.

As the regular season gets closer we now have two major changes, the schedule and new rules to improve game flow.

Though the Barclays Center has been the team's home since the 2012-13 campaign, the new-look Nets, who are in rebuild mode under the guidance of general manager Sean Marks and head coach Kenny Atkinson, are looking forward to expanding their brand on a global scale.

"We are excited to take part in fostering the NBA's global outreach and to connect with the Nets current and growing fanbase in Mexico", said Nets general manager Sean Marks, who was the first National Basketball Association player from New Zealand.

The Dec. 7 matchup will be the 25th NBA game in Mexico, and the NBA Mexico City Games 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the first NBA game in the United States' neighbor to the south.

The Thunder has traveled internationally to compete outside the NBA's 28 cities before.

Tampa Bay Bucs waive kicker Roberto Aguayo
FSU coach Jimbo Fisher suggested previous year changes to Aguayo's kicking routine may have contributed to his inconsistency. Obviously, not up to the standards that I want. "When you get bored doing something, 'well there's more I can do".

This is not the team's first venture out of the country, outside of playing in Toronto. Fans also can watch the games via the National Basketball Association app.

NBA Most Valuable Player Russell Westbrook, and Chinese-American playmaker Jeremy Lin will be featured in two regular-season games to be played in Mexico City next season, the league announced Wednesday (Thursday in Manila).

A party familiar with the schedule confirmed that the Heat were in the mix for the games in Mexico City.

Brooklyn is also reportedly scheduled to play Miami two days later, December 9 at Mexico City Arena. "And, as I said, there is no market more important to us than Mexico". The team has not officially released its schedule for the upcoming regular season.

The games will be televised by ESPN in the US and Televisa in Mexico.
