"The pre-season games may be the best and in some cases, only chance for fans to see the new Miami HEAT team in action," said Eric Woolworth, President of Business Operations for the HEAT Group.

CSKA Moscow, winners of two of the last five Euroleague Championships (2006, 2008), have also appeared in the last eight Euroleague Final Fours, making four Finals appearances during that span (2006-09). They are headlined by former Euroleague MVP Ramūnas Šiškauskas and feature a number of Americans and former NBA players, including Trajan Langdon, JR Holden, Jamont Gordon, Viktor Khryapa and Sasha Kaun, who was a teammate of HEAT guard Mario Chalmers on the 2008 National Champion Kansas Jayhawks.
