Alleged Bryan Colangelo burner account may have tipped off Philly’s Draft plans
The Philadelphia 76ers are still debating the future of president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo, but one of his alleged burner accounts might have already showed the team’s cards heading into this upcoming NBA Draft.
According to Derek Bodner of The Athletic, one of his five accounts had likes multiple tweets that talked about Villanova forward Mikal Bridges and Michigan State forward Miles Bridges.
“Activity logs show “Still Balling” (@s_bonhams), one of the anonymous Twitter accounts named in the bombshell report from The Ringer last week that triggered an internal investigation of Colangelo by the team, liked multiple tweets and articles suggesting two prospects in the 2018 draft, Mikal Bridges and Miles Bridges, could make sense for the Sixers.”
The Sixers will pick with the 10th overall selection this year, and one of the Bridges may fall on their lap (no pun intended), as both forwards are slated to go between the eighth to 14th pick.
The New York Knicks had also expressed interest in both of these players, looking to improve their depth at the small forward position, making it likely that there’s only one Bridges available by then.
The archive of likes, comments, and tweets from those burner accounts strongly suggests that Bryan Colangelo’s job is likely in peril, giving away plenty of confidential information, along with several HIPAA violations that could ultimately tarnish the team’s reputation and blow up their draft strategy, only a couple of weeks away from taking stage.
