Rod Thorn set to become Sixers president

New, comments

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Sixers are set to hire former Nets president Rod Thorn as team president, with Ed Stefanski remaining as General Manager.  An announcement could come as early as Thursday according to Wojnarowski's sources.

More info to come as this unfolds.  Is this a good move?  Does this  change your opinion much on the long term future of the team?  Are you more at ease now knowing Thorn has the final say?  What is Ed Stefanski's role with the ball club, long term?  Would you have preferred this route over gutting the front office and going with Kevin Pritchard/Mark Warkentien/<insert your GM candidate here>?   Does DiLeo still retain his influence in the draft?  Do the higher ups have a long term plan?

Discuss in the comments section.

Edit

According to Dennis Deitch of the Delco Times, Thorn will be in charge of personnel moves, with the draft and scouting under Stefanski's jurisdiction.  Link: twitter.
