The NBA’s ties to France continue to grow.

The league announced Wednesday that the Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers will play their third regular-season game at Accor Arena on Jan. 11 in Paris. In January, the Chicago Bulls defeated the Detroit Pistons in Paris, home of the 2024 Summer Olympics.

The Nets-Cavs matchup comes after Frenchman Victor Winbanyama was selected by the San Antonio Spurs with the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft.

It will be the Nets’ second game in Paris after playing a preseason game in the French capital in 2008. The Cavaliers have never played in Europe.

Cleveland won the Summer League title in Las Vegas earlier this week.
