Philly to part ways with Bryan Colangelo

The Philadelphia 76ers' ownership group reportedly met Tuesday night to discuss whether to fire their president of basketball operations, Bryan Colangelo, over the so-called "burnergate" scandal.

Bryan Colangelo has strongly denied having any knowledge of several Twitter accounts that were connected to him through circumstantial evidence in a story published by the Ringer, and according to a report Wednesday, the Philadelphia 76ers believe him.

The Sixers ownership group "met for several hours" in NY on Tuesday to discuss the team's "independent investigation" into Colangelo, Wojnarowski reported.

Colangelo, who is the team's president of basketball operations, confirmed that at least one of the accounts was his.

According to The Ringer's Ben Detrick, Colangelo may have been using several burner accounts on Twitter to do everything from promoting himself to tearing down his predecessor, Sam Hinkie, to releasing sensitive information about players.

First driver’s licenses issued to women
Ultraconservatives viewed women driving as immoral and warned women would be subject to sexual harassment if they drove. About 2,000 licenses are expected to be issued sometime next week, a statement from the ministry of information said.

The Sixers have used the law firm Paul/Weiss to investigate the Twitter accounts.

And even if he manages to keep his job, Colangelo's credibility seems to have been lost.

Philly was hard-pressed to make a decision sooner, rather than later, as the NBA Draft is only two weeks away from taking stage, and the organization will need to have an image of transparency with the No. 10 overall selection on the line. Investigators interviewed Colangelo, 53, and his wife separately for several hours over Sunday and Monday, league sources said.

There are question marks surrounding the success of their offseason though, as many believe if Colangelo is kept in his post, it could affect which players sign with the team during the summer. Recently hired assistant Monty Williams also will play a large role.
