Joshua Harris Rumors
The first source said Jerry Colangelo, who stepped down as chairman the day Bryan was hired and is now a special adviser to managing owner Josh Harris, didn’t like it when he found out Brown’s two-year extension was a done deal upon joining the franchise Dec. 7. The extension was announced at a new conference with former GM Sam Hinkie and Brown four days later.
The Process is apparently alive and well, if you are to believe the 76ers’ newest president of basketball operations. “I want to be very clear. This is not a departure from a process,” said Bryan Colangelo, who majority owner Josh Harris introduced Sunday in an afternoon press conference at Wells Fargo Center.
“This is moving forward with everything that has already been established, everything that is in place, and we’re going to be measured in our continued building of this organization,” he said. “With that, I’d just like to say that I’m excited and thrilled to be here. I think this is a wonderful opportunity, not just for me, but for everyone in this room, everyone in this city. It’s going to be an exciting process going forward. There’s a lot to aim for.” That being said, Colangelo warned that he expects roster turnover during what he called “a summer of change.” With as many as four first-round choices in June’s draft, and close to $60 million in available salary cap space, Colangelo will assess who stays and who goes.
