Bryan Colangelo resigns as president of the Philadelphia 76ers

The fallout from the Bryan Colangelo burner account scandal may end up having an impact on the Boston Celtics front office.

"We find the situation to be disappointing for our entire organization", 76ers managing partner Josh Harris said.

Regardless, the investigation concluded Colangelo "was careless and in some instances reckless in failing to properly safeguard sensitive, non-public, club-related information in communications with individuals outside the 76ers organisation".

The independent review by a law firm did not determine that Colangelo operated or was even aware of Twitter accounts that anonymously trashed some of his own players and fellow executives, and defended him against criticism from fans and the sports media.

"The evidence supports the conclusion that Ms Barbara Bottini. established the Twitter accounts and posted content on those accounts", the law firm said in a statement. The Sixers have no clue if Colangelo was behind the Twitter accounts but they launched an investigation last week and all week considered firing Colangelo.

The accounts also tweeted favorable opinions about Colangelo while denigrating Philadelphia's former general manager, Sam Hinkie.

Colangelo's departure came after The Ringer news website said the executive had secretly operated five Twitter accounts under bogus identities and used them to take potshots at Sixers players and coaching staff. This comes a week after reports that Colangelo was using five different Twitter accounts to bash Sixers players, front office and leaking out everything that was going on behind the scenes.

When first contacted by The Ringer, the 76ers said one of the accounts, which did not tweet, was owned by Colangelo, who apparently used it to keep up with National Basketball Association news.

In the days after the initial report, internet sleuths found evidence suggesting the accounts were linked to Bottini. There was no definitive proof linking Colangelo to the others; however, when The Ringer contacted the 76ers about two of the accounts, it intentionally did not mention the other three.
