Time to have a traditional hierarchy and get rid of this decision by committee BS. The optimist in me wants to believe EB didn’t push for Horford and Harris, but rather the leftover BC goons did.

Next up: Rucker and Cohen gone please. If they do this, I will understand more why they are giving Brand another chance. Who knows how much they influenced recent decisions.
2019-2020 Philadelphia 76ers:

Milton/Neto
Richardson/Korkmaz/Smith
Harris/Thybulle/Burks
Simmons/Robinson/Scott
Embiid/Horford/Pelle/O’Quinn

Depending on the coach, the level of "overseeing basketball operations" will likely vary. I can't imagine Jay Wright will risk his legacy at the hands of Elton Brand.

Brand is back? Welp, I'm not giving these dunces any of my money until they do a full reboot. It ain't much but it feels good to give a personal "f you" to these absolute idiots.

Thanks BB, a good dude even if he is not the right guy for this current iteration of the Sixers.

The fact that they won't fire Brand, a guy who should've never been hired, and will allow the current structure to pick the next coach tells you all you need to know about this organization. They're a disgrace. They are the worst this city has ever had, and boy this city has had many. They don't deserve your time, money, or support.

Assuming there are games played in arenas next year, and there may not be, that arena needs to be empty next season. Show Harris and Blitzer what you think about them by making that place a ghost town every night.

Brett wasn't great at the x's and o's, and maybe he was too much of a players coach and didn't have that iron fist in him, but for him to get the boot while Harris, his Epstein-linked hedgefund cronies and Elton remain is so disgusting. Thanks for everything Brett

What does changing the front office structure if you're not changing the person responsible for the terrible decisions?

Brand shouldnt be allowed to make any trades. He is incompetent but now he is also desperate as he is next guy to get fired.

Class act, Brett Brown. I appreciate you and thanks for everything you've done for the franchise in the last 7 years. We all know you wanted nothing but the best for the team. But we hit the wall and changes needed to be made.

Thanks again and good luck with your next gig.

Harris will stay no matter what, he can't fire himself. The only thing he can do is be more hands off.

It's gonna be an uninspired retread of some sort. Lou probably.

These guys got creative one time, reaped a bunch of rewards and got scared off by all the consequences. Now they will never do it again.

Why are you saying all these interesting names we aren't going to interview?
