    The whole thing went down like the plot of some terrible Hugh Grant romantic comedy. It was on. Then it was almost off. But now it is back on again. We will see if Ed Stefanski and the Toronto Raptors can live happily ever after. The two sides are close to a deal to make…

  2. Report: Raptors’ talks with Stefanski ‘stalled’ as Sixers GM looks to Blazers

    Oct 15, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson Press Conference

    Remember how Ed Stefanski was going to be the next Raptors GM, essentially working under Bryan Colangelo in what would largely be an assistant role since Colangelo is the guy who runs the show? And how it was a done deal and all that? Yeah, not so much. Yahoo! Sports reports that the deal has…

  3. Raptors close to hiring 76ers Stefanski as general manager

    Ed Stefanski, the 76ers general manager who has basically been a lame duck in Philadelphia since the ownership brought in Rod Thon to run the show, is close to landing a new gig. He is in “advanced talks” to become the GM and No. 2 guy with the Toronto Raptors behind team president Bryan Colangelo,…

    At some point, the Portland Trail Blazers are going to need a general manager. And if that time is sooner rather than later, well, they are in trouble. More than four months after the Trail Blazers started their search for a new general manager after firing Rich Cho, after interviews with at least four candidates,…

  5. Stefanski hasn’t interviewed with Raptors… but he’s job-hunting

    Jul 16, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson Press Conference

    See, this is why the media is always so skeptical of what teams tell them. When Rod Thorn joined the Sixers, it was supposed to be happy-happy joy-joy in terms of his addition alongside Ed Stefanski. There wasn’t supposed to be any conflict, or issues. Stefanski was supposed to retain almost all of his power…

  6. Raptors considering several to fill GM role

    Jul 15, 2011, 9:20 AM EDT

    Bryan Colangelo

    Bryan Colangelo has been calling the shots in Toronto and, well, that hasn’t gone as well as he planned. Now there is pressure on to win. Soon. As part of that President and GM Colangelo is looking to bring in a GM to be part of the Raptors front office, and he has several candidates…

  7. The Blazers, the Sixers, the Pistons, rebuilding and you

    It sits there on your desk, staring at you. Just a big red button. It doesn’t implore you, it doesn’t call out to you, it’s just a button. But you can’t help but glance at it with the first few losses. Then more and more, you stare. Your mind is racing with what to do.…

  8. Sixers hire Rod Thorn as team president, Ed Stefanski moves to GM

    Aug 12, 2010, 1:49 AM EDT

    Ed Stefanski has had mixed success during his time with the Philadelphia 76ers, as he’s simultaneously amassed some interesting young talent while completely nuking the team’s financial flexibility. He turned mid-first rounders into Marreese Speights and Jrue Holiday, re-signed Louis Williams to a reasonable deal, and kept Andre Iguodala in Philly. The only problem is…

  9. Ed Stefanski is still the man in Philadelphia

    May 25, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    One might have surmised this from the fact he headed up the recently-concluded coaching search, but now we have confirmation: Ed Stefanski is staying on as president of the Philadelphia 76ers. Ed Snider, the chairman and the man who makes the ultimate decisions for team owner Comcast-Spectacor, wondered why anyone even thought Stefanski was not…

  10. Philadelphia coaching search focused on Doug Collins

    May 13, 2010, 9:29 AM EDT

    The Philadelphia coaching search has settled in on Doug Collins as the leading candidate — another recycled coach rather than a team giving a top assistant a shot. The two sides have talked almost every other day since their May 1 meeting, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. While Sixers General Manager Ed Stefanski has interviewed…

  11. Byron Scott will not be your next Sixers coach

    May 7, 2010, 10:06 AM EDT

    While the coaching carousel is just starting to spin for this summer, the list of guys getting interview has become pretty standardized. Tom Thibodeau, Dwane Casey, Doug Collins, Mark Jackson, Byron Scott — these guys all get calls. Except in Philadelphia, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The 76ers do not plan to contact Byron Scott…

  12. Doug Collins is first call in Philadelphia coach search

    Apr 29, 2010, 8:52 AM EDT

    Former NBA coach and current TNT broadcaster Doug Collins has gotten the first call about becoming head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers. That’s according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, who said nobody else has yet been contacted by team president and general manager Ed Stefanski. However, you can bet that Collins will not be the only…

  13. Sixers still want Larry Brown as coach, maybe more

    Apr 26, 2010, 9:08 AM EDT

    When Larry Brown says “I don’t want to coach there” does anyone really take him at his word? The brass of the Philadelphia 76ers doesn’t. Can’t really blame them, either. Larry Brown has said he doesn’t want to leave Charlotte, doesn’t want to return to Philadelphia and coach the Sixers. But the brass in Philly…

  14. Eddie Jordan officially fired as Philadelphia Sixers coach, as expected

    Apr 15, 2010, 10:02 AM EDT

    This news comes not with any surprise, save for the season-long surprise of just how quickly things went bad this season in Philadelphia. CBS’s Ken Berger (via twitter) and other sources are reporting that the Sixers will host an 11 a.m. news conference to announce the firing of Eddie Jordan as coach. Reports are that…

  15. Report: Eddie Jordan interested in Rutgers job

    Apr 10, 2010, 1:01 PM EDT

    Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! is reporting via Twitter that Eddie Jordan has ‘significant interest’ in the vacant Rutgers University head coaching job and may interview for it at the end of the season. Woj goes on to say that Jordan will have ample time to prepare for an interview as he will be let go…
