I’m not sure there’s any way this isn’t about hiring Sam Hinkie as GM. But, a series of interesting Tweets popped up following the announcement of the announcement, all seemingly in opposition of each other:
Heller is one of the Sixers’ co-owners, and Eskin is claiming that he demoted Aron (perhaps why we saw significantly fewer Tweets from Aron at the end of the season). But I can’t see how the press conference today would be anything other than the Hinkie announcement… and it’s certainly not to announce that someone is being fired. Although it could be to announce a public stoning of Spencer Hawes, which would be totally cool.
