At the end of last week, the NBA approved Comcast-Spectacor’s sale of the Sixers to a group of investors led by New York billionaire Joshua Harris; at that time, the news conference was tentatively scheduled for Tuesday.

Tuesday’s news conference will be the first time the new ownership group - which includes Harris, David Blitzer, Art Wrubel, and Jason Levien - will speak publicly about their $280 million purchase of the Sixers.

The news conference is scheduled to commence at 11:30 a.m.
