After the success of the sellout game at the O2 between the Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks, NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver has promised that the Global Games series will be returning to London.

When asked if the game would continue when David Stern's reign as the head of the NBA finishes, Silver replied:

"The answer is yes, we do have plans in place to continue playing regular season games in London. It's been a fantastic experience for our teams and our players, and we hope to continue building our business in London and throughout Europe."

Later in the press conference, Silver dropped a hint that it might be more than just a single game in London. He said;

"I think we're looking at other opportunities, maybe to play more games or possibly do a tournament at some point."

A four team tournament in London would be excellent to see for English and European fans of the game. As long as it would be competitive and not just pre-season exhibitions, i'm sure a tournament would attract full houses every night, no matter where it was played.
