76ers Decide Fate Of GM After Fake Twitter Accounts Scandal

David Hookstead | Smoke Room Editor-in-Chief

The Philadelphia 76ers and general manager Bryan Colangelo have parted ways.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news Thursday when he tweeted, “Philadelphia and Bryan Colangelo have agreed to part ways, league sources tell ESPN…In the wake of the twitter burner account probe, Bryan Colangelo’s departure in Philadelphia is expected to be described as a resignation, league source tells ESPN.” (SLIDESHOW: THESE GORGEOUS WOMEN LOVE BASKETBALL)

Well, this should come as a shock to absolutely nobody. Several Twitter accounts discussing 76ers players were revealed to be linked to him and his wife. We were actually just discussing this morning whether or not we expected Colangelo to be fired or the organization would sever ties with him.

Seemed like they obviously have to can him. You can’t have your GM or his wife running burner accounts discussing private player information. Not a great time for the 76ers at all. They just lost their GM and the draft is two weeks away.

That leaves us asking whether or not we’re still trusting the process. Well, are we? Stay tuned to find out.
