HoopsHype Brandon Williams rumors
If the product on the court isn't all that impressive just yet, at least the 76ers appear to be putting together a very strong front office. Yesterday the team announced that Brandon Williams, who most recently served as the NBA's associate vice president of basketball operations, has been hired as the general manager of the Wilmington 87ers, the Sixers' NBA Development League team. Williams spent the past eight seasons in the league office, also serving as director of player development in the community and player programs department, helping players prepare for the rigors of being a professional athlete. "Brandon will be a big help for our organization, a terrific mind who has experience with the league," general manager Sam Hinkie said Philadelphia Inquirer
