You would think that a team without a head coach, a brand new general manager and a lottery pick would be making more noise during the offseason, especially with the 2013 NBA Draft only three days away. But for the Philadelphia 76ers, there has not been much to report since they hired Sam Hinkie to be their general manager.

There are always rumors, but nobody knows who they are going to draft, who will be the next head coach and what they are going to do with Andrew Bynum. The latest news to come out of Philly doesn’t do anything but add to the confusion.

According to reports, the 76ers have parted ways with CEO Adam Aron. When new ownership took over in October 2011, Joshua Harris brought along Aron as co-owner and CEO. Aron has been known to be very vocal on Twitter during 76ers games. He would answer questions during games and always do his best to shed positivity on what was a very dim season for the team. More importantly, he was a fan. He wanted his team to win so badly and he was extremely passionate.

It is clear that this team is going in a different direction. Since the end of this past season, Doug Collins, Tony DiLeo, Rod Thorn and now Adam Aron are all gone. All we have in place is Sam Hinkie and as of right now it is unclear who will be the voice of this franchise for years to come. All we know now is the Sixers can add CEO to the many job positions they have to fill.
