Serena Winters said her goodbyes to Philadelphia via Twitter today, as she will no longer be covering the team for NBC Sports Philadelphia. She was part of the large round of layoffs made by the network in early August, and had been finishing out the NBA season. Serena joined the broadcast team in the fall of 2018, primarily as the sideline reporter, but also filling in as part of the main announcing duo on a couple occasions, most memorably calling Ben Simmons’ first 3 in a professional game during the exhibition contest against the Guangzhou Loong-Lions.

Serena posted her favorite clips from her tenure in Philadelphia, which included handling exotic animals, working out with the Harlem Globetrotters, and, of course, memorable moments with the players. The video was comprised of Furkan Korkmaz saying he made it rain, Mike Scott mentioning Tobias Harris reads books, and Joel Embiid shimmying, just to name a few.

To share the sentiment posted by her now former colleague, Marc Zumoff, we loved having you in Philadelphia as part of the Sixers family, Serena. Best wishes going forward!
