The Dallas Mavericks are coming to town to face the 76ers on Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
That means Sixers fans will get a chance to see Nerlens Noel in action for the first time since he was traded by Bryan Colangelo for Justin Anderson and a couple of second round picks.

Oh, and cheesesteaks. It apparently means cheesesteaks.
Nerlens tweeted on Wednesday night that he'll be in town for the game early and wants to treat Philly fans to a little snack.
"PHILLY ! I'll be at Chickies and Petes hanging out from 7-8pm tmrw (Thursday) night ... FREE CHEESESTEAKS ON YA BOY
#AllLove," the tweet read.
Nerlens was one of the original members of Sam Hinkie's Process, so it's obvious many fans still have a soft spot for the Mavs center.
But this is a great idea regardless that I believe more returning athletes should employ. Want a great reaction when you first step on the field/court in a non-Philly uniform? Make sure we are fat and happy on free cheesesteaks and crab fries. Want a standing O? That'll require a free beer as well.
