Sixers to play game in Atlantic City

Sixers to play preseason contest at Boardwalk Hall in October.

The Sixers will host the Brooklyn Nets on Oct. 13 in a preseason game at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall, according to reports.

The team is holding a 2 p.m. press conference Tuesday to make it official. Sixers president Rod Thorn, guard Evan Turner, along with casino and Atlantic City officials will be in attendance.

This is considered a major achievement for Boardwalk Hall, which recently lost the Atlantic-10 tournament.
