Sixers to hire Thorn as President

Posted By Mike Santa Barbara On Aug 11 2010 @ 11:57 pm In Philadelphia 76ers | No Comments

According to NBA sources the 76ers will announce the hiring of former Nets President Rod Thorn on Thursday.

Thorn will again be working with current 76ers GM Ed Stefanski. Both worked together as employees of the Nets for parts of 6 seasons.

Thorn was President of the Nets for the better part of a decade, helping the Nets reach the Finals once along the way. Thorn’s departure from the Nets came shortly after Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov purchased the team.

At this point it appears Stefanski will keep his job as GM. Though, the ever increasing changes in authority of front office and scouting issues put Ed squarely on the hot seat headed into the 2010-11 campaign.
