Danny Ferry Speaks To Hawks About GM Job

A week and a half ago, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported that Danny Ferry – formerly of the Cleveland Cavilers, and recently the San Antonio Spurs – was the front-runner to eventually replace Rod Thorn as the Sixers general manager.

As everyone is well aware of by now, Ferry is the guy Coach Collins has been pushing for. No one man should have all that power.

But now, Chris Broussard of ESPN is reporting that Ferry has spoken with the Atlanta Hawks, in regards to their GM position.

Ferry, who built the Cleveland Cavaliers into one of the league's top teams as the club's GM from 2005-2010, is one of the most respected and coveted basketball minds in the league and is also being courted by the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers have spoken to Ferry about replacing Rod Thorn in their front office.

Please disregard Broussard's lazy assessment. If you want to know more about Ferry, read this exchange.

I'm not the biggest Danny Ferry fan, but I don't exactly support anyone else in the Sixers front office. As long as Collins is around, it's been made abundantly clear that he's calling the shots, regardless of who owns the GM title.
