It looks like the Sixers will be taking their talents to London next January for a regular season game against the Celtics, per a report from the Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey:

This would be a part of the NBA's Global Games series, which has held games in London's O2 Arena for the last five years in January. The Sixers have never played a regular season game outside the United States and Canada before. Some people may be upset that the Sixers will have one less home game during the season, but I'm not of that mindset. I think it's a great opportunity to showcase the team on the international stage and another indication that team is finally starting to get "good."
