With less than 48 hours remaining until a probable lockout, there really isn't a whole lot to do but sit around and wait. The lockout is a mixed blessing in my view, for a couple of reasons, but let's spend the day talking about what things might look like when the dust settles.
If you're interested, the powers that be will meet on Thursday for another round of "negotiations," so technically a lockout could be averted altogether, or possibly delayed, but given the war of words going on in the press right now, I'd say both are pretty unlikely.
So let's assume there is a lockout, and let's also assume the Sixers sale goes through shortly before or after the lockout begins. When the dust settles, there will be changes. I've stated several times that I believe Ed Stefanski and Rod Thorn will probably be gone when new management comes in. I don't see why they'd stay on when the new ownership group has a basketball guy already attached, a guy who has been angling to run a team ever since giving up his career as an agent, but that's supposition on my part.
Here's my question for the day, and it's pretty simple. The next time the Sixers take the court, who will still be a part of this organization?
- Andre Iguodala
- Rod Thorn
Have at it, I'll kick off the comments with my own thoughts.
