76ers believe Bryan Colangelo on burner Twitter accounts

76ers believe Bryan Colangelo on burner Twitter accounts

There was no definitive proof linking Colangelo to the others; however, when The Ringer contacted the 76ers about two of the accounts, they intentionally did not mention the other three.

Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations Bryan Colangelo has denied any knowledge of the burner Twitter accounts purported to be his in a story published by the Ringer.

Colangelo was not at the Sixers facility Thursday, a day after sources said he was spotted at pre-draft workouts. The team's owners are expected to be in town.

The Sixers' search for a new general manager will "commence immediately", Sixers Managing Partner Josh Harris said in the team's statement. We find the situation to be disappointing for our entire organization.

"We do not believe Mr. Colangelo established the Twitter accounts or posted content on those accounts".

When contacted by The Ringer, the 76ers said one of the accounts, which did not tweet, was owned by Colangelo, who used it to keep up with National Basketball Association news.

I hope IG's report on Clinton, Comey is not being made 'weaker’
The Justice Department's internal watchdog sent a criminal referral for McCabe in April to the U.S. Comey did not tell the DOJ about the announcement prior to making it.

The 52-year-old told Yahoo Sports that he believes there's someone "out to get him".

One problem with Colangelo's denials were that those tweets aligned with some of the frustrations and beliefs voiced inside the organization.

The law firm the 76ers hired to investigate in the wake of The Ringer's report found that Colangelo's wife, Barbara Bottini, ran the accounts. That was four days after Sam Hinkie resigned as general manager and team president of basketball operations after it became clear he would lose his power to Colangelo.

The 52-year-old Colangelo has worked in the NBA for nearly three decades, and his father Jerry Colangelo is a former team owner and former chairman of USA Basketball.

Bryan is a two-time victor of the NBA's Executive of the Year Award.

The Sixers will reportedly come to a decision later today on their general manager in order to prepare themselves the best way they can for what could be a busy offseason for them as they have significant salary cap space that they could use to lure marquee free agents this summer.
