CLEVELAND (AP) -- LeBron James will play his first preseason game with the Cavaliers at home before he faces his former team, the Miami Heat, in Brazil.
The Cavs will open their exhibition season Oct. 5 against Maccabi Tel Aviv, the Israeli club formerly led by new Cleveland coach David Blatt. It will be James' first game with the Cavs since re-signing with them last month as a free agent.
