Sam Hinkie will one day be the real MVP of the Philadelphia 76ers, with most acknowledging that the former GM was fired more for being the face of a horrible tank job than he was for doing a bad job as GM.
Sixers bigman Joel Embiid was a huge part of the process, and he took to Instagram on Saturday to pay tribute to now fallen Hinkie with a photo of the two sharing a laugh amid the slogan, “Trust The Process,” and “He Died For Our Sins.”
Hinkie resigned in April and left behind a roster that will include Jahlil Okafor, No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons, Embiid, Nerlens Noel, Dario Saric and almost $40 million in cap space.
