Anthony and Knicks to play 76ers in exhibition game at Carrier Dome
Former Syracuse star Carmelo Anthony will return to the Carrier Dome when his New York Knicks take on the Philadelphia 76ers in an exhibition game.
The game is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. Sue Edson, assistant director of athletics for communications, said in an email that negotiations for the event are underway, but SU does not have a signed contract at this point.
It will be the second NBA exhibition contest to be hosted at the Dome in three years. In 2010, the Minnesota Timberwolves, featuring former SU stars Jonny Flynn and Wes Johnson, defeated the Detroit Pistons 99-88.
The game will also be Anthony’s second NBA homecoming to the Carrier Dome. In 2008, Anthony and the Denver Nuggets played the Phoenix Suns in Syracuse.
Ticket information for the game has yet to be released.
