Los Angeles Clippers superstar and reigning NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard will make his return to Toronto on Dec. 11 to face the Raptors, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

The night of Nov. 27 promises fireworks of its own with the return of Kyrie Irving - as a member of the Brooklyn Nets - to Boston to square off with the Celtics and newly minted Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis going to New Orleans to face the Pelicans.

Clippers forward Paul George will make his return to Oklahoma City to face the Thunder on March 3, sources told Yahoo's Chris Haynes.

Dallas Mavericks forward Kristaps Porzingis returns to Madison Square Garden to play the New York Knicks on Nov. 14 and Russell Westbrook returns to OKC as a member of the Houston Rockets on Jan. 9, according to Charania.

Mike Conley - who had spent his entire 12-year career with the Grizzlies before being traded to the Utah Jazz - makes his return to Memphis on Nov. 15, Charania adds.
