Sam Hinkie Rumors

Jerry Colangelo believes the 76ers are in better hands with the current management, than they were with Sam Hinkie. The 77-year-old Sixers chairman and father of the team’s general manager Bryan Colangelo joined the 94WIP Carlin & Reese Show on Friday, and spoke candidly about former polarizing GM and orchestrator of “The Process” Sam Hinkie.

Colangelo’s thoughts on the Sixers’ former general manager? “I respect the fact that he thought so much out of the box, which he really did, in terms of being the analytical guy that he is,” Colangelo said. “And of course, people can look back on decisions that were made — good or bad — and most everyone’s track record is full of both and [they] come to their own conclusions.

“I respect the fact that he thought so much out of the box, which he really did, in terms of being the analytical guy that he is,” Colangelo said. “And of course, people can look back on decisions that were made — good or bad — and most everyone’s track record is full of both and [they] come to their own conclusions. “Since the change in management, there’s much more of a defined game plan in terms of going forward, and that’s very positive, in my opinion, for the franchise. Sam left some good stuff in place, no question about that. Along the line there was a lot of pain in terms of incredible losing and that could only be sustained for a period of time. And I think in Philly’s case, I think he probably ran out of time.”
