A radio report that 76ers CEO Adam Aron was no longer part of the basketball operations wasn’t exactly on the mark. During an interview with former Sixers general manager John Nash, Nash said that Aron had been ‘extracted’ from the basketball operations department. Aron is still very much a part of the organization, said a source, and he’s still involved in basketball operations. However, he has never really been a major contributor in that department anyway. According to the source, Aron’s role with the team ‘has not changed since Josh Harris purchased the team. He’s still very much involved. Philadelphia Inquirer

The names will continue to be floated out there as to whom the 76ers are going to interview for their vacant coaching position, many of the names listed here in the Daily News a couple of weeks ago. But the main priority right now is to solidify the front office, whether it is keeping who is there (such as general manager Tony DiLeo) or cleaning house. As majority owner Josh Harris said the day after the end of the season, "Everything is on the table." And right now the main dish on the table is the front office, with the coaching decision a side dish. Philadelphia Inquirer

"We are very excited to welcome Andrew Bynum, one of the league's best, young centers, and Jason Richardson, a proven, respected veteran, to the Philadelphia 76ers," said Managing Owner Josh Harris. "As we stated from the outset, our ownership group is committed to exploring every option available to us in order to improve our team. This trade is the culmination of a very active off-season, one that we believe positions the Sixers for success this season and for many years to come." NBA.com

Neither (76ers managing owner) Harris nor Thorn ruled out the use of the NBA’s amnesty provision, likely with veteran forward Elton Brand, who will make $18 million next season, the last of the five-year, $80 million deal he signed with the team in the summer of 2008. And when asked if the team is bothered by the prospect of exceeding the league luxury tax threshold – roughly $70 million – Harris said, “We’re going to be smart about it.” CSNPhilly.com
