Report: Sixers front office to remain unchanged
With the hire of Doc Rivers on Thursday, many remained optimistic that this would be the sign of more changes within the Sixers. Per Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer, it appears that the front office will remain intact:
“Back in August, multiple league sources didn’t expect Alex Rucker, the executive vice president of basketball operations, to be back next season. In addition to Rucker, assistant GM Ned Cohen, and VP of strategy Sergi Oliva were also involved in the decision-making as the team relied heavily on analytics.
But now that we’re into October, the new expectation is that Rucker and Cohen are in line to remain, but be out of the loop in regards to decision making. They could just be information gatherers.”Keith Pompey, Philadelphia Inquirer
The organization apparently feels as though bringing in Doc Rivers (who won’t have any control in the front office) was more than enough to keep everyone happy.
With their indefensible misuse of assets and questionable antics during the pandemic, this decision leaves more questions than answers.
