Orlando Magic and the Toronto Raptors are to play an NBA fixture at London's O2 arena at the start of next year.

The match on 14 January will be the American basketball league's sixth regular-season game in the capital.

Orlando played two pre-season games in London in 2003, while the Raptors played there twice in 2011 as the NBA visited Europe for the first time.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said: "This underscores our commitment to growing basketball in the region."
