Stefanski out as Sixers GM

Philadelphia - The Sixers' new ownership group announced that general manager Ed Stefanski will not be back with the team.

Team president Rod Thorn will remain with the organization and be in charge of basketball operations, being called the "captain of the ship" by majority owner Joshua Harris.

"We were lucky enough when we bought the team to have two fantastic people doing one job," Harris said. "We are going to stay with Rod. There are no current plans to replace Ed."

Stefanski, who was originally hired as the Sixers president and general manager in 2007, already had his role reduced when Thorn arrived in Philadelphia last season. He recently interviewed for the general manager job with the Toronto Raptors.
