76ers to play in Mexico

76ers to play in Mexico

Since it's still early in the day for definite news about the 76ers coaching search, here's this news, which just passed through my e-mail: In an Oct. 18 preseason game, the Sixers will play the Phoenix Suns in Monterrey, Mexico.

This game will be the NBA's second game held in Monterrey -- at Arena Monterrey -- and the 18th game in Mexico, the most held in any country outside the U.S. and Canada. The game is being called NBA Mexico Game 2009 and tickets will go on sale June 1 at www.arenamonterrey.com.

“We're thrilled about the opportunity to bring some of the NBA's most exciting teams and accomplished players to Monterrey," said NBA Senior Vice President of International Development and Partnerships Emilio Collins, in a press release. "Our fans in Mexico are some of the most passionate in the world, and this year's NBA Mexico Game is sure to provide them with an unforgettable NBA experience.”

Hopefully there will be news on the coaching search soon,
