The Nets will be trading the Brooklyn Bridge for London Bridge for a few days next season.
For the second time in three years, the Nets will travel to London for a regular-season game, this time facing the Hawks on Jan. 16 at O2 Arena — the same venue where Nets star Deron Williams won his second Olympics gold medal last year.
“It always is an honor to represent the league overseas,” Williams said in a statement. “Playing in London has a playoff-like intensity, and the energy in the building is great for the players on both teams. It should be very exciting.”
The NBA said the game would be a home game for the Hawks, meaning that the Nets will still have 41 games at Barclays Center.
