Report: Sam Hinkie has Stepped Down as GM of the Sixers

Just ONE DAY after sitting down to talk with Zach Lowe on the Lowe Post podcast about the process and the Sixers’ future, Sam Hinkie has reportedly stepped down – or “been asked and/or made to” step down – from his positions as President and GM of the Sixers.

The timing is baffling as the Sixers just won a game, have a very big off-season for Hinkie (and Colangelo) to do something with multiple picks and cap dollars, and the news on Joel Embiid and Dario Saric seems good. It’s going to take some time to sort out what exactly happened here, but we’ll have more as it comes out.

UPDATE: In the least surprising news of all time, the Sixers are reportedly eyeing Bryan Colangelo for the new GM spot.

UPDATE 2: According to the full report from Marc Stein, it was moves to bring in Bryan Colangelo at or around Hinkie’s level that caused him to resign.

  2. He also takes credit for the sun rising in the morning.

    1. Eskin has to be the dumbest human alive. He killed Hinkie for 3 years but Hinkie absolutely aced what he was brought here to do. Eskin too much of a moron to realize it.

      1. Eskin was right from the start. Hinkie destroyed the franchise as they became the laughing stock of the basketball world but you Hinkie fools will never realize it. It will take years for the new GM to clean up this mess.

  3. I don’t blame him. What’s he gna do, shine the Colangelos shoes in the morning?

  4. So since the Sixers did what I wanted, do we fix it for them to get the #1 pick?
    No? Still the Lakers?
    Ok then.

  5. Best of luck, Sam. I’d say “thanks for all the assets” but I’m pretty sure they’re not going to amount to much with a half-dead nepotist beach bum’s kid running the show.
