MEXICO CITY (AP) — The NBA will return to Mexico City next season, with the Washington Wizards and the Miami Heat set to play a regular-season game there on Nov. 2.

It will be a home game for the Wizards and the 33rd NBA matchup in Mexico since 1992, the most of any country other than the United States and Canada.

Miami's roster currently includes Jaime Jaquez Jr., an All-Rookie team member this season who is of Mexican descent. Jaquez was part of a Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House last month.

It'll be the fourth game in Mexico for Washington, the third for Miami. The game will be broadcast live in Mexico on ESPN.
