A radio report that 76ers CEO Adam Aron was no longer part of the basketball operations wasn’t exactly on the mark.
During an interview with former Sixers general manager John Nash, Nash said that Aron had been ‘extracted’ from the basketball operations department.
Aron is still very much a part of the organization, said a source, and he’s still involved in basketball operations. However, he has never really been a major contributor in that department anyway.
According to the source, Aron’s role with the team ‘has not changed since Josh Harris purchased the team. He’s still very much involved.
Aron has never played a major role as a rubberstamp on making decisions that affect the product on the floor. He is, however, a liaison to Harris on all basketball decisions. According to the source, that will not change.
Aron was in attendance Tuesday at the introduction of new president of basketball operations and general manager Sam Hinkie. Aron did not address the report.
