Philadelphia 76ers reserve forward Mike Scott got into a scuffle with Philadelphia Eagles fans prior to their game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon. According to Kyle Neubeck of Philly Voice, after going through footage of the incident, the Sixers are reportedly not going to impose any sanctions on the big man:

A team spokesman told PhillyVoice that based on their review of the available evidence, the Sixers are not treating this matter as a disciplinary incident at this time, and they will not punish Scott for his involvement absent a new development.

In contrast, the Sixers are looking into ways to protect their players when they attend public events such as the Eagles-Redskins game:

The Sixers are, however, reviewing their team policies regarding security at public events as a result of the incident. With their security in place to help deescalate on Sunday, they were still concerned with how quickly the incident was able to unfold, and the team places a premium on maintaining the safety of their players at all times.

It's great to see the Sixers standing up for their man.

Scott showed up at Lincoln Financial Field sporting a Sean Taylor Redskins jersey. Fans didn't seem to warm up too well with the sight of someone wearing the rival's colors.

The scene reportedly started off as “accepted hostility,” with fans yelling some NSFW language to Scott. However, witnesses nearby reportedly heard some racial slurs directed at Scott, which ticked off the 31-year-old Virginia native, hence instigating the fight. If those reports are true, then you can't really blame Scott for reacting the way he did.

Luckily, nobody was seriously hurt in the incident. However, it's still very unfortunate that Eagles fans, who are also likely Sixers fans, did this to someone they'll be rooting for this upcoming NBA season.
