Report: 76ers preparing for Celtics in a 2020 playoff matchup

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Philadelphia 76ers believe that the season will resume at some point. Whether it is the regular season, or the playoffs, nobody knows.

But, what we do know, is that the 76ers are preparing like the league will go straight into the playoffs. If that scenario is the case, then Philadelphia will face the Boston Celtics in the extra season.

“We are talking about the Celtics, as if that could be an opponent,” Sixers general manager Elton Brand said. “Brett [Brown] and his staff have also prepared for other teams in case there is a regular season and the [seeds] change. But we’ve done a deep dive.”

At this time, the league has been very quiet about returning. They were trying to use the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) as an example.

However, they failed to restart their league after taking a hiatus. Now, that league in China will not begin again until July, according to reports.

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has made it publicly known that he believes there will not be another game played this season. He, along with other members of the Warriors, have said the season is over.

Everyone has their own opinions. And that’s their right. But, at least Brand is thinking that there will be a continuation to the league at some point — maybe July or August.

Whenever the season resumes — if it does resume — Brand, along with the rest of the organization — are preparing like they are going to be ready to go.
