The 76ers, having gone outside the organization early on in their search for a general manager to eventually replace Rod Thorn, are now looking inward – this time at senior vice president of basketball operations Tony DiLeo.
According to a team source, the Sixers, who have interviewed four others from outside the organization for Thorn’s position, were impressed with the role DiLeo played this summer alongside Thorn as the team rebuilt the team around center Andrew Bynum.
The Sixers have set no timeline in which to name a general manager. Thorn has a little less than one year remaining on his contract. Upon its completion, Thorn will move to an advisory position with the Sixers.
