Philadelphia 76ers hire Sam Hinkie as general managerSince Doug Collins resigned as head coach more than three weeks ago, speculation surrounding the 76ers has been on finding his replacement. However, on Friday the Sixers secured the services of the man who will make the final call on Collins' successor, naming Sam Hinkie president of basketball operations and general manager.

Hinkie, the Houston Rockets' vice president of basketball operations the last five seasons, replaces Tony DiLeo. DiLeo, who has spent 23 years with the organization and was named general manager less than a year ago, will not return. DiLeo's contract was set to expire next month.

The Sixers are combining two positions into one. Rod Thorn, who now works as a consultant for the Sixers, formerly held the title of president of basketball operations.

"I'm sad to see Rod and Tony go," the Sixers' Evan Turner said Friday. "Welcome to Sam Hinkie. Hopefully, he has an idea of how to get us all back on track. Hopefully, everything is positive."
