Miami Heat stars Dwyane Wade and LeBron James will join Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony in a four-game "Homecoming Tour" next month.
With the NBA lockout keeping players sidelined, the All-Star group will begin the tour in James' hometown of Akron, Ohio on Dec. 1.
The players will then continue for a Dec. 4 game in New Orleans, followed by dates in Chicago and East Rutherford, N.J.
"It'll be very neat," Wade said. "First of all, this is something we talked about doing a long time ago as players.
"To have an opportunity to go to these different cities that we're from, to bring basketball to them at a high level and also have a charitable component in each city and to be with the guys, it'll be cool. It's something we're looking forward to."
Proceeds from the tour will benefit the respective charities of the four headlining players.
