The Sacramento Kings have been busy this off-season acquiring new players and flying around the world.

The Kings have played pre-season games in Canada and China. Tomorrow night they are home, hosting an Israeli professional team, Mac Cabi Haifa.

Kings President Chris Granger says the international flavor of this year's pre-season is no accident.

"I think you see us do a series of things designed to bring the Kings' brand to all corners of the world. Whether it's having our players travel to India or China to do camps and clinics, whether its sending our dance team abroad, we're going to continue to focus on things that bring Kings' purple to fans across the world."

The Kings began broadcasting some of their games in India during last season and plan to continue this year.

The Kings have one more trip abroad scheduled for 2014. Kings majority owner Vivek Ranadive plans to visit his native India with NBA Commissioner David Stern in December.
