  • Thunder's Paul George, Jerami Grant ruled out vs. Nets

Oklahoma City standout forward Paul George will miss Thursday's game against the Brooklyn Nets in Mexico City due to a bruised right calf.

Both plans demonstrate the importance of the Mexico City market to the league's desire to further grow in Latin America. (The Wizards' incoming G-League team will become the 27th team starting next season.) The Mexico City franchise would be locally owned and operated, per Stein, without a direct National Basketball Association affiliate.

While stressing that his league is not actively pursuing expansion or relocation for any of its 30 current franchises, Commissioner Adam Silver has described Mexico City as a natural contender for an eventual N.B.A. team on numerous occasions this year.

The most obvious precedent for a Mexican G League team is baseball's Mexican League, which is classified as Triple-A under the Minor League Baseball umbrella, though its 16 teams are not affiliated with Major League organizations. The Nets' games against the Thunder and Miami Heat this week are during the 25th anniversary of the NBA's first games in Mexico.

Just as those games in Mexico might have been considered a trial run for a G League team there, that G League team could test the tenability of an National Basketball Association franchise based south of the border, a stated interest of Silver's.

Silver added that the league was exploring the cost involved in a Mexican G League franchise. Scheduled to open this winter, it will be the NBA's seventh training center.
