Bryan Colangelo resigns as Philadelphia 76ers president

In the days that followed, Twitter sleuths and various media reports were able to pinpoint a connection between the information sent from those accounts and Colangelo's wife, Barbara Bottini.

Sixers managing partner Josh Harris was asked about the report on Jerry during a press conference on Bryan's departure Thursday.

Recognizing the detrimental impact this matter had on the organization, Colangelo offered his resignation.

"We find the situation to be disappointing for our entire organization", the team added in its statement.

The Sixers will reportedly come to a decision later today on their general manager in order to prepare themselves the best way they can for what could be a busy offseason for them as they have significant salary cap space that they could use to lure marquee free agents this summer. The 76ers said he would oversee basketball operations on an interim basis and that the search for a new general mangaer would begin immediately. "While this is obviously a mistake, we are family and we will work through this together".

Our investigation revealed substantial evidence that Mr. Colangelo was the source of sensitive, non-public, club- related information contained in certain posts to the Twitter accounts.

ET, and if Games 1 and 2 tells us anything, there is nearly assuredly going to be more drama unfold in some form or fashion. There was nothing the Cavs could do. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world can hit those but him".

Philadelphia's 2018 playoff run ended in the East finals against Boston. A 76ers fan account posted evidence showing that Bottini's personal phone number had the same last two digits as numbers linked to three of the Twitter accounts, and Wojnarowski reported that investigators hired by the team interviewed Colangelo and Bottini "separately for several hours Sunday and Monday". Colangelo admitted to operating one of the accounts - the one that never sent out a tweet - but denied knowledge of the other four.

Remarks made on the anonymous accounts criticized current and former Sixers, including the team's star, Joel Embiid. "That would just be insane", he wrote. He was hired by the team in April 2016, succeeding Hinkie in the role. He served as Toronto's general manager from 2006-2013. It also lamented in another post that Ujiri hadn't done anything to make the Raptors better.

Among other things, the user or users of the accounts complained that Embiid, the 24-year-old All-Star center, was "playing like a toddler having tantrums" and was "a bit lazy", "selfish" and "acting like a tool".
