Bryan Colangelo Taking Over as 76ers General Manager Over Sam Hinkie

It will no longer be in Sam we trust, but 76ers fans can take solace in knowing that their new general manager has had success on multiple occasions of putting together playoff-caliber teams.

Hinkie’s resignation on Wednesday clears the way for two-time NBA executive of the year Bryan Colangelo to take over as general manager, according to The Vertical.

“While we are disappointed in Sam’s decision, we would like to sincerely thank him for his contributions over the past three seasons,” 76ers managing general partner Josh Harris said in a statement. “There is no question that Sam’s work has put us in a very strong position to take advantage of numerous opportunities for an exciting future.”

Hinkie’s top aides in basketball operations learned of his resignation through the media, league sources said.

Colangelo, the 2005 and 2007 NBA executive of the year, is the son of 76ers chairman Jerry Colangelo, whom the franchise inserted over Hinkie four months ago.

Sixers ownership and Jerry Colangelo wanted Hinkie to accept Bryan Colangelo’s hiring as a complement to Hinkie in the front office, but he rejected the idea, sources said.

Bryan Colangelo had actively pursued the Brooklyn Nets general manager job, initially unenthusiastic about the perception of working for his father for the second time in his career, sources said.

Danny Ferry was also mentioned as a candidate as well.
