Brooklyn Nets face Atlanta this week in the unaccustomed surroundings of London's O2 Arena and spent Tuesday experiencing what the Hawks' temporary 'home' city has to offer.

It was a busy day of sightseeing for the franchise with trips to some of the best known tourist attractions in London, which included a visit to the home ground of Premier League side Chelsea.

Kevin Garnett posed for pictures with Chelsea stars Andre Schurrle and Demba Ba at Stamford Bridge, while there was also a Nets team photo later in the day at one of the capital's most iconic spots.

The Nets players and staff gathered in Trafalgar Square, under the looming Nelson's Column, to have their snap taken - which was posted on their Twitter feed - while Big Ben could be seen poking its head through the clouds in the distance.

Up next for Brooklyn will be their game against the Hawks, which begins at 20:00 GMT and is the next phase of the NBA's Global Games.
