The NBA London Game, hosted by AEG, features the two Atlantic Division rivals that struck a trade for the top overall pick this year.

As for the London game, "Big" Ben Simmons and the boys will fly over the pond to face the hated Boston Celtics on January 11, 2018.

This will mark the Celtics' first regular-season game in London.

The Celtics have always been a staple of the National Basketball Association, and now is a great time to use them to bring in more fans from the outside.

"I am delighted the NBA continues to bring the world's best basketball to our great city in what has now become a well-established and eagerly anticipated event on London's sporting calendar", said Mayor of London Sadiq Khan. We look forward to introducing the world to the 76ers next generation of transformational stars.

Managing partner Josh Harris and fellow co-owner David Blitzer happen to be shareholders in another franchise (aside from the Sixers and New Jersey Devils) - and this one plays not too far from where the Sixers will take on the Celtics.

With their combined talent, young exciting players and recent history with the Markelle Fultz-Jayson Tatum trade, this is a great matchup to bring to global fans. "Celtics president Danny Ainge coveted Tatum so much that one has to believe his future in Boston will be a bright one". "We are a young, hungry team, and we will be sure to give the fans an exciting game against Boston in January". It will be the second time the Celtics have traveled to England's capital, as they also played a preseason game there against the Minnesota Timberwolves back in 2007. If you're on a payment plan, you'll never even be charged for that game. Tickets will go on sale in October.
