Bryan Colangelo Rumors
“We are thrilled that Elton has agreed to take on the GM position of the Sevens, a natural next step given both his personal and professional skillset,” Colangelo said. “The transition from a terrific playing career to team management was something that we have been talking about for some time and this opportunity is both timely and appropriate. I look forward to working side-by-side with Elton as we continue to grow and develop our overall basketball program.”
That’s why he ultimately decided to sign the one-year deal with Philly, saying that the opportunity to play with this young core was “too good” to pass up. “As these guys get older and get more experience, I think there’s an opportunity to make a leap and really be one of the elite teams not only the East, but in the NBA. That’s a credit to Sam Hinkie, Bryan Colangelo and to their owners.”
As the league descended upon Toronto for All-Star Weekend in February 2016, the Nets were leaning toward hiring Bryan Colangelo over Marks, according to sources familiar with the process. During All-Star Saturday night, Razumov and R.C. Buford, then Marks’ boss as the Spurs’ GM, had a long talk in the chairman’s suite inside the Air Canada Centre, according to several sources. Buford’s message was clear: The Spurs might not grant Marks permission to take the job unless he would get to do it his way. Several other executives, including Bob Myers, the Warriors’ GM, also praised Marks in chats with Razumov that weekend, sources say.
“We are happy to have Furkan Korkmaz join us in Philadelphia this year where we feel he will be best positioned to develop physically and acclimate to the NBA game,” Colangelo said. “Furkan is another talented young player that we are excited to have in our program.”
The boxes below control the feed for the automatic blinds in Colangelo’s office. They’re installed right above the ceiling. As you can see, SOS wrote “Trust the Process” on the inside of one panel and “Hinkie died for this…” on the the other.
