There is so much Sixers news today you'd think basketball was actually happening this year. The Sixers sale finally went through and the new ownership group, led by billionaire Joshua Harris, was introduced to the media. Among those owners is Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, so that should be fun.
The new owners also announced that Ed Stefanski is leaving the organization and that Rod Thorn will take over as GM. Given the many mistakes that Stefanski has made over the years, I'm sure fans won't be too upset over that. Thorn has a great basketball mind and should be solid in the role.
Adam Aron will be the new CEO of the Sixers.
Among the other announcements, ticket prices will be slashed up to 50% for Sixers games and owners also promised a much better in-game experience. If only there will be an NBA season this year.
