Wilson Chandler has yet to play in a 76ers game. But the reserve forward delivered the team’s biggest assist on Tuesday. Chandler hosted a 4-year-old boy with a terminal disease and his family. Levi and the Payne family were the Sixers’ guests at the morning shootaround at Seaholm High School in Birmingham, Mich. Chandler provided Levi, his two sisters, mother, and stepfather tickets for Tuesday’s night game against the Detroit Pistons at Little Caesars Arena.
After suffering a strained left hamstring on Sept. 28, Chandler heard about Levi while talking to a close friend. Chandler was upset over the injury. That all changed after his friend brought up Levi’s situation. Looking to provide Levi with a special moment, Chandler asked his friend to text Levi’s mother to see if he could have her number. After she said yes, he called her to set up the family’s long trip to the Detroit area.
