Sixers Hire New GM and President

The Philadelphia 76ers are to hire Sam Hinkie as their new GM and president to a multi-year deal. Hinkie will now be replacing Tony DiLeo. He will also be in full control of basketball operations.  Hinkie was a former Houston Rockets assistant GM, working in the Rockets front office for 8 years. In 2007, Hinkie became the youngest vice president in the NBA and in 2010, he was promoted to executive vice president.  Joshua Harris said, “There are a lot of things that you all don’t see. In terms of the organization building advanced analytic capability…certainly there will be more analytics in decision making.” Hopefully this will be a great fit for a growing Sixers team.
