Sixers Injury Update: Embiid's minutes increased, Okafor remains out

UFC PR exec Dave Sholler accepts job with Sixers

Dave Sholler, UFC Vice President of Public Relations, Athlete Marketing and Development, announced on Twitter that he trading in breaking up fights at press conferences for a job with his hometown team.

John Morgan of MMA Junkie reports that Sholler will officially part ways with UFC following UFC 205 on November 12 at Madison Square Garden. From there Shuller, a New Jersey native, will be overseeing all communications for the Philadelphia 76ers.

As the Sixers hopefully begin to turn a new corner in the coming season and years to follow, it's an interesting time for Sholler to join a team that is starting to get somewhere beyond a laughing stock in the national media. Ben Simmons alone got ESPN to pick up Opening Night and while he's on ice for a while, the debuts of Joel Embiid and Dario Saric have people talking about the Sixers in a positive way  beyond the area.
