Bryan Colangelo alleged burner account tweeted he would trade Joel Embiid for Kristaps Porzingis
The five Twitter burner accounts allegedly belonging to Philadelphia 76ers president Bryan Colangelo have left a massive crater of destruction in its wake.
Along it is this gem, in which Honest Abe shows his willingness to trade the Sixers’ centerpiece for another prime time player on the New York Knicks.
The misspellings and odd capitalization of these tweet suggest this might not be an executive as decorated as Colangelo, but if it is — it surely is a damn good job at pretending to be the average Twitter fan.
Many franchises have expressed their desire to acquire Kristaps Porzingis, especially after former president Phil Jackson dangled him in the free agent market for a few days after a reckless stint during the offseason, one that spelled the end of his term with The Big Apple.
Yet trading a talent like Embiid seems like a far reach, especially after catapulting the Sixers to their first playoff stint in the last six seasons.
Embiid has proven to be confident this is some sort of misunderstanding or a flat out aberration, showing his support for Colangelo — but if this indeed proves to be the Sixers’ suit, it can destroy any relationship between the Cameroonian and the front office, eliminating the trust factor and damaging The Process that they’ve worked on building during the past four years since he was drafted.
