NEW YORK (AP) — Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao will play an NBA game back home in Brazil for the first time when Cleveland takes on the Miami Heat in an exhibition in October.

The NBA announced five international preseason games Thursday. The Brooklyn Nets and Sacramento Kings will meet twice in China — Oct. 12 in Shanghai and Oct. 15 in Beijing.

The Spurs will also play two Euroleague Basketball teams. San Antonio faces eight-time German champion Alba Berlin in Berlin on Oct. 8 and five-time Turkish champ Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul in Istanbul on Oct. 11.

The Cavs-Heat matchup is also Oct. 11 in Rio de Janeiro.

The NBA will later announce regular-season international games for 2014-15 as part of its efforts to promote the league around the world.
