The 76ers are among the Eastern Conference teams happy to see Kawhi Leonard move out west. His last-second, bouncing shot knocked Philly out of the playoffs last year as Toronto won their first NBA title. For Philadelphia, meantime, “the process” continues, with the Sixers locked in as one of the favorites in the East this season. Veteran Al Horford and Josh Richardson join the cast this season, and Tobias Harris returns on a new five-year deal after he came over in a trade midway through last season. With Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, Philly should be one of the best rebounding teams in basketball, and their size could help them in a potential matchup with Milwaukee in the 2020 playoffs.
The Wells Fargo Center, home to the Sixers since 1996, just finished the fourth of a five-year, $265 million renovation. A 4K Kinetic scoreboard above center court is the largest addition. The board has pieces that can move, along with the ability to feature pyrotechnic and smoke effects.
The Center City Club is also new for 2019-20. It’s an exclusive area for courtside and other premium ticket holders. The 7,400-square foot area features a show kitchen and two 50-foot bars. This is all in addition to the nearly 100 traditional luxury suites in the venue, giving you plenty of options for a first-class experience at 76ers games this season.
