John Nash & Chris Ford are no longer part of the Philadelphia 76ers.
Bob Cooney reports for the Philadelphia Inquirer:
“I’ve had the good fortune to do this for a long time,” Nash said last night. “I’ve been general manager for four different teams [Sixers, New Jersey, Portland and Washington], been with the Sixers three different times and was employed 28 years with the NBA. I would love to continue to do it. I feel anyone in this profession who says they don’t want to be a decision-maker is too tired or fibbing. I would still love to run an NBA franchise.”
Ford, an Atlantic City native who went on to become a high school legend at Holy Spirit in South Jersey and a star at Villanova, coached 30 games for the Sixers during the tumultuous 2003-04 season. He replaced Randy Ayers, and the team went just 33-49 that season.
