Bryan Colangelo’s wife is a ride or die, and her loyalty to her embattled husband may have just cost him his job. The Philadelphia 76ers are expected to soon conclude their investigation into the social media allegations against Colangelo.

According to Philly.com's Keith Pompey, some league sources expect Colangelo to lose his job as president of basketball operations.
A league source said Colangelo was visibly shaken when the report broke while he was attending a workout in Los Angeles.

Colangelo has missed pre-draft workouts on Wednesday and Thursday, and will reportedly only survive this if the Sixers determine he was set up.

“The only way that he’ll get out of it is if he comes with evidence that somebody set him up,” said a league executive, speaking on condition of anonymity. “If it is out there where they can’t prove, either way, I don’t think he’ll keep his job. And if there’s involvement with a family member, it doesn’t look like he has a chance either.”
The report states that ownership fears that Colangelo’s credibility inside and outside the organization could be too damaged, especially within a month of a free agency period that has the Sixers planning to pursue superstars such as LeBron James and Paul George.
