The Internet was abuzz on Monday evening when an apparent new Sixers logo popped up on Twitter. The ballin' forefather logo was first tweeted by @RealGM which said that the 76ers would be "adding a dribbling Benjamin Franklin as a secondary logo."

They even had multiple colorways which made it seem legit.

That's not the case.

CSNPhilly.com's Sixers Insider Dei Lynam did some digging around and learned that the 76ers will not be changing their official logo nor are they adding Dr. F as a secondary.

The good news, however, is that you will see the Ben Franklin design on select T-shirts next season.

If the design looks familiar to you that's because a very similar version was used for the 2002 All-Star Game which took place in Philadelphia.
