Bryan Colangelo Bracing for Firing as 76ers Investigation Focuses on His Wife

In addition to tweeting from burner accounts, Bryan Colangelo (or his wife) seems to have been commenting on all sorts of articles

Sixers news: Bryan Colangelo already losing trust from players around NBA

The Philadelphia 76ers are now investigating Bryan Colangelo - the team's president of basketball operations - and his alleged use of five Twitter accounts, as first detailed in a report from The Ringer.

It seems that Bryan Colangelo's covert online activity might not have stopped with burner Twitter accounts.

A fan at a Philadelphia Phillies game in San Francisco on Friday night wore a "Fire BC" shirt behind home plate, expertly trolling 76ers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo over his alleged use of multiple Twitter accounts.

The content of five anonyms Twitter accounts linked to Colangelo - first reported by The Ringer earlier in the week - include the bashing of 76ers' players and personnel and medical information about former centre Jahlil Okafor.

"The notion here was, let's find out what's going on", Silver said.

Due to this, it was noted that the billionaire, who recently lived in London and owns Chelsea FC, was denied prolongation of visa. It is known that the Chelsea owner has already chose to freeze the reconstruction of home stadium Stamford Bridge.

The Sixers started their investigation into tweets linked in a report to Colangelo that criticized Sixers players Joel Embiid and Markelle Fultz, among other National Basketball Association figures.

Two things are taking place while the third-party investigation takes is underway - Colangelo is taking damage to his image and his reputation with every day that passes. The Sixers launched an investigation into the "serious" allegations.

Colangelo has told close associates that he believes he knows who is responsible for the tweets but has insisted to those inside and outside the investigation that he had nothing to do with the postings and was unaware of them until The Ringer brought them to the Sixers' attention prior to publication of the story this week, league sources said.

The 52-year-old told Yahoo Sports that he believes there's someone "out to get him". "That would just be insane", he wrote. He served as Toronto's general manager from 2006-2013. Colangelo admitted to being behind one. It also lamented in another post that Ujiri hadn't done anything to make the Raptors better.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
