The Cavaliers will be playing their first game in Europe.

The Nets finished fourth in the East last season but were upset by the New York Knicks in the playoffs.

“Our players and coaches will benefit greatly from the experience of immersing themselves in Paris’s rich culture off the court,” Brooklyn Nets General Manager Sean Marks said in the NBA press release.

Cleveland finished fourth in the East but was upset by the New York Knicks in the playoffs.

“This unique opportunity will provide our players, coaches, staff and families an experience into a different culture,” said Cleveland Cavaliers president of basketball operations Koby Altman.

There have been more than 40 NBA players from France, more than from any other country outside North America.

The top pick in the recent draft was Frenchman Victor Wembanyama who was taken by the San Antonio Spurs.
