Billy King's reign in Philadelphia appears to be over.
The Philadelphia Daily News is reporting that the Sixers plan to fire their general manager and replace him with New Jersey Nets general manager Ed Stefanski.
Stefanski is expected to sign a multiyear contract, and his introduction will come at a Tuesday news conference, according to the newspaper.
I'm shocked King wasn't fired after the whole fiasco with Allen Iverson happened, but he's gone now, which should have Philly fans breathing a sigh of relief. Maybe the Sixers can be contenders again soon.
"Wocka Wocka...who wants to hear a funny-ass joke?"
In two separate transactions yesterday, the Pacers traded embattled forward Shawne Williams to the Dallas Mavericks for Eddie Jones, some second-round draft picks and cash; and also extended the contract of center Jeff Foster through the 2010-11 season.
