WATCH: DeVonta Smith rings bell at Sixers game with Hurts


Do you think brand new Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith is excited to be in Philadelphia, and vice versa?

If you need any further proof, turn your attention to South Philly on Friday night, where after spending all day touring the Eagles' NovaCare Complex, Smith and his new quarterback Jalen Hurts - plus veteran defensive end Brandon Graham - crossed Pattison Avenue and headed over to the Wells Fargo Center to take in the Sixers' home game against the Hawks.

Oh, and who rang the Sixers' pregame bell during the intro ceremonies?

C'mon. You know it had to be Smith himself.

Here was the scene from inside the Wells Fargo Center as the rookie rang the heck out of the bell:

The Sixers' official Twitter account shared some seriously fantastic courtside shots of Smith, Hurts, and Graham:

I kind of love that Smith looks so dressed up compared to his new quarterback (and good friend) in Hurts. Smith has that "first day of school" vibe and Hurts is the cool kid welcoming his old pal to new digs.

Oh, and of course Sixers President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey had to say hi:

What a start to the DeVonta Smith era in Philadelphia. Incredible.
