Not yet. But that's their aim. So far we've had four exhibition tours. Three or four teams come over and play in a handful of cities. Last year's tour had way more teams than before: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_NBA_Europe_Live_Tour

London has had:

2007: Celtics v T-Wolves
2008: Heat v Nets
2009: Bulls v Jazz
2010: Lakers v T-Wolves

They want to make it regular season games, but so far it's just pre-season stuff.

The NHL do play regular season games in Europe, but London hasn't had one since 2007.

The 2010 games are in Prague, Helsinki and Stockholm. I may go to Stockholm.
