Sixers jettison Nash, Ford

The NBA lockout has taken two more casualties.

The Sixers let go of two of their scouts -- John Nash and Chris Ford

Nash was the team's GM from 1986 to ‘90 and returned to the organization in a reduced role for the 2006-07 season.

Ford, who attended Holy Spirit in South Jersey and Villanova, was the Sixers' head coach for 30 games during the ill-fated 2003-04 season and often clashed with Allen Iverson. He replaced Randy Ayers, and the team went just 33-49 that season.
