The 76ers part ways with tow of its scouts

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.”

Nash was GM of the Sixers from 1986 to ’90. His latest stint with the team started after he left the GM job with Portland after the 2005-06 season.

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.
