76ers hire Thorn to work with Stefanski and Collins

The Philadelphia 76ers today named Rod Thorn, an NBA veteran of more than four decades, as the team’s new President. Ed Stefanski, who had served as the team’s President and General Manager since December 4, 2007, will continue in his role as General Manager.

HoopsVibe`s Very, Very Quick Call: No need for panic.

Usually, a new president means the existing general manager and coach are at risk of being fired. News presidents typically wants their guys in key positions.

Not the case with Rod Thorn and the Philadelphia 76ers. He worked with GM Ed Stefanski when both were suits with the New Jersey Nets. They're comfortable with each other.

President Thorn, GM Stefanski, and Coach Doug Collins have a working, and perhaps personal, relationship.

These three are a good group to and right the ailing 76ers.
