“The Blue x White Scrimmage presents an opportunity for us to connect with our fans in a unique and personal manner,” Coach Brett Brown said. “I’m looking forward to introducing this year’s team at the iconic Palestra on the University of Pennsylvania’s campus. The building strongly represents the toughness and perseverance of the city of Philadelphia and of the 76ers organization.”

This will be the first opportunity for fans to see new Sixers like rookie Markelle Fultz and veterans J.J. Redick and Amir Johnson.

And if you’re worried about the Eagles game on that Sunday (October 1st), they don’t play until 4:05 p.m. — at the Los Angeles Chargers.
