76ers F Scott gets in fight with Eagles fans

Philadelphia 76ers forward Mike Scott got into a fight with Eagles fans during Sunday’s game against the visiting Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field.

Scott posted a photo on social media earlier in the day showing himself in a No. 21 Redskins jersey. A video was posted before kickoff showing a person, apparently Scott, in a No. 21 Washington jersey in a fight with Eagles fans outside the stadium. He did not appear to get hurt, and fans tweeted afterward that Scott took selfies with them.

Scott later posted a photo of himself in the stands, with the caption, “Look who made it lol.”

“We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more information,” the 76ers said in a statement. “We will have no further comment at this time.”

Scott, 31, is from Chesapeake, Va. He joined the Sixers from the Los Angeles Clippers as part of the trade for Tobias Harris last year, averaging 7.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in 27 games after arriving in Philadelphia.

He has also played for the Atlanta Hawks and Washington Wizards.
