THE SIXERS have six preseason games scheduled, beginning on Oct. 11 and ending Oct. 21. Two are home (Boston, Cleveland). Three are on the road (Orlando, Brooklyn and Boston). One game against the Brooklyn Nets, scheduled for Sat. Oct. 13, has no site listed on the Sixers website.
That will change Tuesday afternoon at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City when it is expected to be announced that the game with the Nets will be played in the historic venue. Sixers president of basketball operations Rod Thorn, along with Evan Turner, are to be there representing the team as the official announcement is made.
