Sixers, Celtics to play in a preseason game at University of Delaware
The Carpenter Center is the home of the Sixers' new D-League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers.
"We're thrilled to welcome the Sixers to campus for a preseason game," UDel president Patrick Harker said in a statement.
"This game is about the Sixers' and the Sevens' continued commitment to Delaware and the great basketball fans across the state," Sixers CEO Scott O'Neil said in the release.
The remainder of the Sixers' preseason slate has yet to be unveiled. Their regular-season schedule will come out Tuesday, when the NBA releases the schedules for all 30 teams.
