OKLAHOMA CITY – Kevin Durant is bringing basketball back to Oklahoma City.

Durant and OKC-based Sold Out Strategies announced the USFleetTracking Basketball Invitational set for Oct. 23.

The game will tip off at 6 p.m at the Cox Convention Center.

Several big names such as LeBron James, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony have been confirmed to be playing.

Fellow Thunder players Russell Westbrook and James Harden will take part, as well as former OKC player Jeff Green.

The rest of the rosters are to be determined, but promoters said the rosters are falling into place and should have between 8-10 players on each squad.

Tickets start at $29 and go on sale Monday at Noon at coxconventioncenter.com, the Cox Center box office, participating Homeland stores or by calling 1-800-745-3000. A portion of the proceeds will benefit charities chosen by participating players.

Sold Out Strategies, owned and operated by local sports executives Brad Lund and DeBray Ayala, will serve as "promoter of record" for the game. Former OSU Cowboy, Thunder player and News 9 analyst Desmond Mason will serve as director of basketball operations.

News 9 will update this story as more details become available.
