WASHINGTON - While 76ers coach Doug Collins has not addressed a column in Thursday's Inquirer that indicated ownership wants him to resign, there are others in front offices around the league that are willing to talk about it.
Such was the case Friday when an Atlantic Division general manager, speaking anonymously, addressed the situation.
"Doug has gotten them to the playoffs in the last two seasons, so he's got that going for him," the general manager said.
"Everyone knows he's an excellent coach. But that situation wasn't right from the start," he continued, obviously referring to the trade for Andrew Bynum, who never played this season for the Sixers. "Does he get the blame for that? I don't know. Seems like there's something else going on. I don't know, so I can't speak specifically. You just wonder."
