China Daily | Updated: 2014-08-11 07:06

LeBron James will play his first game against his former team when the Cleveland Cavaliers travel to Brazil in October for the NBA's second exhibition game in South America.

The Cleveland-Miami Heat exhibition contest on Oct 11 in Rio de Janeiro is part of the NBA's Global Games series, which also includes the Sacramento Kings playing the Brooklyn Nets in Shanghai and Beijing on Oct 12 and Oct 15, respectively.

James' Cavaliers open the preseason at home against Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv on Oct 5. James re-signed with Cleveland as a free agent last month after four seasons with Miami where he won two titles.

The Cavaliers released their preseason schedule on Friday, announcing they will also play Oct 15 against Indiana in Cincinnati and against Chicago in Columbus on Oct 20.
