NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NBA will play regular-season games in Mexico City and London as part of its extended global schedule for next season. The Houston Rockets and Minnesota Timberwolves will play at the Mexico City Arena on Nov. 12. The Milwaukee Bucks will face the New York Knicks at The O2 in London on Jan. 15. The two regular-season games will follow the NBA global preseason games in October that will feature five teams — Brooklyn, Cleveland, Miami, Sacramento and San Antonio — playing a series of games in Brazil, China, Germany and Turkey. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says, "These regular-season games will bring the excitement and incredible competition of our league to more fans in Europe and Latin America."

The move comes five months after Leiweke first told the sports holding company that he plans to quit and leave Toronto next summer. The MLSE board initially planned to find a replacement for Leiweke on its own. But recruiting has been difficult. Some candidates pursued by MLSE havent been interested in being interviewed because of the fractious relationship between MLSE co-owners Bell Media, Rogers Communications and construction magnate Larry Tanenbaum. I think the temptation was too great for MLSE to just try to work off the list of people they considered two years ago when they hired Tim, but circumstances have changed since then, said a person close to the MLSE board. Its become apparent that the board is going to be an issue for any incoming CEO to manage. Some prospective candidates simply havent worked out. MLSE has interviewed former Madison Square Garden executive Hank Ratner, but decided that wasnt a good fit. Others interviewed for the position include NHL executive John Collins, who has helped to build the NHLs business through savvy marketing and a host of outdoor hockey games, but he also was instrumental in awarding the NHLs Canadian TV rights to Rogers. That might complicate his hiring, since Bell Media also sought those rights. Bell is TSNs parent company. Large companies and sports leagues often hire executive search firms to cconnect with prospective candidates.dddddddddddd The CFL, for instance, has retained a firm to find a successor to former commissioner Mark Cohon. If MLSE does, indeed, retain an executive search firm, the move would also suggest that John Cassaday, the recently retired CEO of Corus Entertainment, might not be as much of a lock for the job as some in the sports industry have suggested in recent months. As recently as a December, MLSE board members discussed with Leiweke whether he might consider staying on as CEO. But Leiwekes mind is set on leaving to become an entrepreneur. The latest proof of that is his move to quit work as a full-time employee of MLSE. Since New Year, Leiweke has been acting as a consultant to the MLSE board, not the companys CEO, a move that lowers his tax exposure, according to two people close to the MLSE board. Leiweke will leave MLSE with a mixed legacy. He has helped to rekindle the Raptors, hiring GM Masai Ujiri, convinced the companys board to invest in a $30-million practice facility for the basketball team, and negotiated a $100-million expansion of BMO Field. But hes also ruffled feathers. During his first days on the job, Leiweke talked about planning a Stanley Cup parade route through downtown Toronto. Occasionally my energy level and my drive and my bullish attitude towards attacking problems and solving problems is hard for some people, he said during an August interview with TSN 1050. But thats, I think, why they wanted me here. They knew and I knew that that kind of style is not a style that lasts for 10 years.
