DiLeo ready to call the shots as 76ers GM
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Tony DiLeo had held about every position with the Philadelphia 76ers for more than two decades.
He can officially add general manager to that list.
DiLeo was introduced Monday as the new GM and he says he has the experience and ideas that can make the Sixers winners in the East. He'll work alongside team president Rod Thorn.
DiLeo says Bynum returned last week from Germany where he had treatments done on his knees. Bynum had injections of plasma-rich platelets that supposedly stimulate healing in arthritis-affected areas in both of his knees.
DiLeo also says he's a firm believer in analytics and wants the Sixers to use the Moneyball-type of thinking popularized in baseball.
