More Reaction To Sixers Hiring Of Jerry Colangelo

Owners around the league pressured the NBA to put the brakes on Philadelphia’s aggressive rebuilding plan, as Brian Windhorst of reported and as we passed along Monday night, and that indeed played a role in the hiring of Jerry Colangelo, Windhorst writes. The owners were upset with the Sixers, a large market team with a storied history, as many of the games that featured Philadelphia as the visitor have been among the most lightly attended all season, sources told Windhorst. People who know Colangelo, who joined the Sixers to find a new challenge after his plans for a new Team USA practice facility fell through, believe he’ll have major influence on the Sixers going forward, despite owner Josh Harris’ remark that radical changes to the team’s process aren’t to be expected. Colangelo is notorious for negotiating favorable deals for himself, so he probably didn’t come cheaply, an executive said to Windhorst.

  1. Why is the league not all over the lakers as well? We at least have viable assets going forward in future draft picks one of which is the Lakers.

      Why would they? Lakers have a good shot of keeping the pick.

      well, you can make the argument that the Lakers have tried to be competitive. they brought in Hibbert, bass, etc. ended up as a bad team is different than planning to be a bad team.

    FWIW Jerry was on WIP (philly radio) this morning, and when asked about being 76 and taking a job where he could be getting overruled left and right he responded that he’d sign up for that.

      he’d NEVER sign up for that***
