The Philadelphia 76ers plan to build a practice facility in New Jersey, a 100,000-square foot complex they expect to become the jewel of the NBA.
The Sixers filed for tax credits on Friday to start the process. The team hoped to break ground in October and planned to move in some time in 2016. The site will be on the Camden, New Jersey, waterfront on a plot of land between the Camden Aquarium and the Susquehanna Bank Center.
''As part of our due diligence related to a new Training Center, we have officially filed an application for a site along the New Jersey waterfront in Camden,'' the Sixers said in a statement. ''We understand the New Jersey Economic Development Authority will be voting on an incentive for a possible facility on the waterfront at their upcoming meeting. We will have more to say on this matter after the EDA vote.''
The Sixers have rented practice space in the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine since 1999.
They will join the Flyers as Philadelphia teams that practice in New Jersey. The Flyers train in Voorhees, New Jersey.
The Sixers front office is based at the Navy Yard, just a few miles away from the Philadelphia sports complex that's home to the four major professional teams.
