LONDON (AP) — Tickets have gone on sale for the first regular-season NBA games in Europe.

The New Jersey Nets and Toronto Raptors will play a pair of games at the O2 Arena in London on March 4-5, and the NBA is planning a week of activities across Britain for the occasion, including basketball clinics and 3-on-3 competitions.

Nets guard Devin Harris says "everyone involved in bringing the games to London is excited about playing in one of the world's great cities."

The NBA has been playing preseason games in London for several years, and the Los Angeles Lakers will face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Oct. 4 for this year's installment of the league's European tour.
