Paul George (calf) ruled out Thursday for OKC

The Nets have won three out of their last five games, including their last outing against the Atlanta Hawks, while Oklahoma City looks to finally build a rhythm and get back to the.500 mark with what would be a season-best four straight wins. Stein also notes that although commissioner Adam Silver has said the league is not looking to expand or relocate any teams, but he has mentioned Mexico City as "a natural contender" to land a team on multiple occasions.

Establishing a G League franchise on Mexican soil would be the latest serious step by the N.B.A.to gain a foothold in Mexico and gauge the viability of putting an N.B.A. team in the largest market in Latin America.

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George will not play Thursday against the Brooklyn Nets, according to The Oklahoman's Brett Dawson. The Nets' games against the Thunder and Miami Heat this week are during the 25th anniversary of the NBA's first games in Mexico.

Silver says a G League team would essentially be a 31st team in the league, with the National Basketball Association hoping to soon have all 30 of its clubs owning and operating their own minor league affiliate.

The most obvious precedent for a Mexican G League team is baseball's Mexican League, which is classified as Triple-A under the Minor League Baseball umbrella, though its 16 teams are not affiliated with Major League organizations.

The Mexico City franchise is likely to begin operations before the G League reaches 30 N.B.A. -owned franchises, but, according to the people, it would be owned and operated separate from the N.B.A. Scheduled to open this winter, it will be the NBA's seventh training center.
