Jerry Colangelo Says Sixers on Fast Track to Success

Just over a month after being named chairman of basketball operations for the Sixers, Jerry Colangelo believes the team is on a faster track to success than some may think.

“The reality is, and I’ve come to understand this, that Sam (Hinkie) has really done a great job of accumulating assets,” Colangelo said.

“That’s because if somebody gets healthy, if the player from Europe comes in and is part of the rotation, and we will have a very high draft pick and then using some of those assets to do other things to consider, be it free agency, be it a trade, whatever, this thing could flip a lot sooner than people understand. So I think this is not a situation where, gee, when are we going to come out of this or when are we going to be able to compete? I think that could be sooner than later.”
