The NBA has announced that the New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks will play a regular-season game at The O2 next season.

The teams will meet at the London venue on January 15 as part of the league's expanding global schedule, which will also see the Houston Rockets face the Minnesota Timberwolves in Mexico.
