Chris Ford Rumors
“I’ve had the good fortune to do this for a long time,” Nash said last night. “I’ve been general manager for four different teams [Sixers, New Jersey, Portland and Washington], been with the Sixers three different times and was employed 28 years with the NBA. I would love to continue to do it. I feel anyone in this profession who says they don’t want to be a decision-maker is too tired or fibbing. I would still love to run an NBA franchise.”
The 76ers yesterday let go of two of their employees – NBA scouts John Nash and Chris Ford. At a news conference last Tuesday when the new ownership of the team was introduced, it was announced that general manager Ed Stefanski had been released of his duties.
