The Philadelphia 76ers plan to build a practice facility in New Jersey, according to the Associated Press.
A source told AP on Friday that the Sixers will combine their business and basketball operations in the facility in Camden.
The team reportedly filed for tax credits to start the process. It hopes to break ground in October and move to the new facility some time in 2016.
The Sixers have rented practice space in the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine since 1999.
They will join the NHL’s Flyers as Philadelphia-based pro teams that train in New Jersey. The Flyers practice in Voorhees.
