Philadelphia 76ers and Bryan Colangelo Part Ways

However, that does not mean Philadelphia won't fire its president of basketball operations, and team officials are still mulling his fate, with an announcement expected soon. It's hard to imagine many teams will be jumping to hire him after such an incident.

Sixers managing partner Josh Harris said in a statement the firm's findings compromised Colangelo's ability to lead the team moving forward.

"Recognising the detrimental impact this matter had on the organisation, Colangelo offered his resignation".

"We find the situation to be disappointing for our entire organization", Harris said.

Relationships with players is quite possibly one of the most important jobs of a general manager.

The accounts - which went by the names Eric jr, Still Balling, Enoughunkownsources, and HonestAbe - posted sensitive information and made comments critical of the team and personnel. Colangelo was brought in to oversee the franchise in December 2015 during a 10-72 season, and a couple days before Bryan Colangelo was hired, general manager Sam Hinkie - cult hero and architect of the "process" - resigned.

The accounts mention top 76ers draft picks Markelle Fultz and Joel Embiid as well as former Philadelphia players Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel, among others.

Yet, she shared the information - much of which wasn't even accurate, Colangelo said. When interviewed, Ms Bottini admitted establishing and operating the accounts.

"Our investigation was limited and impeded by certain actions taken by Ms. Bottini", the firm said in its statement. This development arrives three days after the Sixers hired a law firm to investigate Colangelo's alleged accounts. The accounts also appeared to defend Colangelo on issues ranging from basketball-related decisions to the size of his shirt collars.

"At no point did I ever purposefully or directly share any sensitive, non-public, club-related information with her", Colangelo said of his wife. But they said there was "substantial evidence" that he was the source of sensitive material posted by the accounts.

Fans also noticed that Embiid had liked several tweets from the burner accounts in question.

The Ringer published a May 30 report connecting five anonymous Twitter accounts to Colangelo. "While I have never posted anything whatsoever on social media, I have used the @Phila1234567 Twitter account referenced in this story to monitor our industry and other current events".

Among other things, the user or users of the accounts complained that Embiid, the 24-year-old All-Star center, was "playing like a toddler having tantrums" and was "a bit lazy", "selfish" and "acting like a tool". "That would just be insane".

And when his wife used those details to criticise his own players or rival colleagues, Colangelo and the Philadelphia 76ers knew he could no longer remain their top basketball executive. He is the son of former Suns owner Jerry Colangelo.
