Reports: Nepotism to Replace Sam Hinkie as Sixers GM
With Sam Hinkie resigning, multiple reports point to the Sixers bringing in Bryan Colangelo – Jerry’s son – as the new GM. Bryan last worked for the Toronto Raptors in 2013. He’s a two-time NBA executive of the year, but here’s a look at how his “process” differs from Sam Hinkie’s:

He’s also the guy who picked Andrea Bargnani first overall in the 2006 NBA draft, but his qualifications and past history are secondary here. The second Jerry Colangelo answered a phone call from Josh Harris, this was the plan. And if the ownership and Jerry want to say they’re shocked that Sam Hinkie would rather resign than spend his time co-GMing with Bryan Colangelo until they fire him anyway, they have an even lower opinion of us than we though.
