Philadelphia Sixers Reportedly Hired New GM Sam Hinkie

by May 10, 2013

Tony DiLeo is out as Sixers general manager, and he’s being replaced by Sam Hinkie. Reports Yahoo! Sports: “Hinkie will replace Tony DiLeo with the 76ers and assume full control of basketball operations. Hinkie, who had been the Rockets’ vice president of basketball operations since 2010, met with 76ers officials a year ago about the job, but the team ultimately promoted DiLeo to the GM role. Philadelphia president Rod Thorn is retiring this spring and assuming a consultant’s role with the organization. Doug Collins resigned as coach at season’s end. Hinkie has had a major influence in reshaping the Rockets franchise, bringing an analytics background to the organization’s strong run of draft picks, trades and free-agent signings.”
