Comcast Confirms Sixers Sale Discussions

Comcast Chief Operating Officer Peter Lukko released a statement today confirming that there are indeed “discussions” about the future of the Philadelphia 76ers.

“I can confirm that we are in discussions about the future of the team, but these discussions are confidential and we cannot talk about the details. At some point, we may have something more to say about these discussions, but we will not be making any comments at this point.”

The statement comes on the heels of an ESPN report saying that the team is close to being sold to a group led by billionaire investor Josh Harris. Also part of the group is former agent Jason Levien, who has previously repped players like Kevin Martin, Luol Deng and Udonis Haslem.

Once a sale is finalized, which according the report could be “imminent”, it would not become official until approved by the NBA’s board of governors. We’ll continue to update this story as it develops.
