    I haven't found an official statement yet, but according to the german NBA site, the Rockets will play the Timberwolves on November 12th next season as a Regular Season game in Mexico City. Also, the Knicks will play the Bucks on January 15th in London.

    UPDATE: Confirmed.

    Why has Minnesota been selected so many times to play in Mexico? Are the timberwolves the official designated team of Mexico?

    They do have Ricky Rubio who is a Mexican. I thought we didn't have Garcia or Delfino anymore?

    Hopefully none of our players' heads wind up in one of those cartel head holes in a random field somewhere.

    Maybe they're moving to Mexico City and becoming Los Lobos Mexicanos.

    Mexico loves the Rockets due to their ownership of the Mexican Snake Team.
