In the midst of the Philadelphia 76ers rebuilding process, one celebrity will be trying out for a Sixers' affiliate next month.
The Delaware 87ers, the 76ers' D-League Affiliate based in Wilmington, offer an open tryout every year to scout potential talent for their team, and tweeted a personalized invitation to Lil' B, a popular rapper with over a million Twitter followers.
Lil' B responded, "tryout invite accepted see you there!! Philly here I come thanks to your front office for keeping your word."
Andrew Dzurita, PR manager for the 87ers, noted that the team has not had any further contact with Lil' B, and could not confirm his appearance.
Lil' B, also known as "The BasedGod," became a household name in the sports world after "cursing" NBA stars LeBron James, Kevin Durant, James Harden and J.R. Smith.
