Thorn to Join Stefanski in Philly

When he stepped down from his job as president of the Nets, Rod Thorn said he wasn't retiring. And he wasn't kidding. Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the 76ers have hired Thorn as their new president. Former Nets general manager Ed Stefanski has been demoted from president to GM in Philly. 

Chris Mannix reports that new coach Doug Collins will join Thorn and Stefanski at a press conference Thursday to introduce Thorn. Of course, It's been less than four weeks since Thorn was replaced in New Jersey by Bily King.  King was available after Stefanski replaced him in 2007. It's caused Chad Ford to ask, "Did the Sixers and Nets swap front offices?"

At the time of Thorn's departure, various explanations were offered as to why he was leaving, from family to a salary dispute with Mikhail Prokhorov. Thorn denied he had any dispute with the new Russian ownership and Prokhorov said the same.
