Yesterday, the 76ers continued their odd, borderline incestuous relationship with the New Jersey Net franchise by hiring Rod Thorn as the new “President” of the franchise.
Yahoo.com’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the story last night via his Twitter account and now several news sources have confirmed the hiring. The Sixers will be holding a press conference later today.
Apparently Thorn will move into the organization as general manager Ed Stefanski’s direct boss. Stefanski worked for Thorn for six seasons in the New Jersey Nets organization.
