Sam Hinkie Has Ruled Out Ever Working In NBA Again 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Oct 30, 2020 10:03 pm

Sam Hinkie ruled out the possibility of ever working within the NBA again during an interview with Pablo Torre of ESPN.


Hinkie was first asked about rejoining the Philadelphia 76ers, which on the face seems like a better chance than previously considering Daryl Morey was just hired by the team.


"Oh, zero," said Hinkie. "Zero. I've turned that chapter for sure. That part of my life. I very much like what I'm doing now. I like surrounding myself with people who think in sort of the timeframes I do, which is often longer. That are quite comfortable with long feedback loops. That want to do the kinds of things I do, which is bet on young people and watch them flourish."

Feedback loops?

Oh God. This guy thinks he's a genius too.

I wonder if Hinkie (ever even) liked hoops or maybe it was just the challenge he was after....

He's absolutely right. Before Colangelo mortgaged their future, they were poised to become a top team. Even as-is, they're still a good team with valuable pieces.
