Collins had big say in 76ers offseason moves
For the past week or so there has been rampant speculation that the Sixers might want Collins out, and according to Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Collins informed 76ers’ controlling owner Josh Harris that he would be resigning after the season concludes.
The news is not completely shocking as Collins has a reputation of running himself and his players into the ground; he is a celebrated workaholic.
The Sixers are currently in ninth place after an offseason last year were Collins was given far more influence over the roster than he’ll admit publicly. It was Collins who pushed for the 76ers to trade for Andrew Bynum and to get Andre Iguodala off the roster. It was also Collins who pushed for the Sixers to pass on paying Lou Williams.
