The Process of the Philadelphia 76ers has hit a slight reset, but with the likes of LeBron James and Paul George set to hit free agency, NBA executives around the league are looking to head to Philly.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski appeared on SportsCenter and said that general managers around the league, even some gainfully employed, are coveting the 76ers vacant job after the Colangelo resignation.
“What I heard around the league today were a lot of very good general managers in a lot of very good jobs [were] kind of looking at their contracts and hitting their agents going, ‘Is there a way I could get out to get involved in that?’” Wojnarowski said. “Everybody wants the Sixers job.”
The news, of course, comes after the 76ers announced Bryan Colangelo resigned as president of basketball operations following an investigation into the use of burner Twitter accounts. Head coach Brett Brown will take over in an interim role.

Philadelphia is still an ideal destination in the Eastern Conference after going 52-30 and reaching the second round of the playoffs this past season. Add in building blocks in Embiid and Ben Simmons (as well as Markelle Fultz), and you have a future dynasty in the making.

The Sixers are also going to seize the opportunity to make a serious run at marquee free agents this offseason, such as LeBron James, Paul George, and more.
