The 76ers have fired chief executive officer Adam Aron, a league source confirmed Monday afternoon.
Howard Eskin of Fox 29 first reported earlier in the day via Twitter that the 76ers had parted ways with Aron.
In addition to being the team's CEO, Aron had an ownership stake in the team. It is unknown if he still does.
The Sixers refused to comment on Aron's status Monday.
This news comes three days after New York Daily News Knicks beat writer Frank Isola tweeted that former Madison Square Garden president Scott O'Neil was close to getting an executive position with the Sixers.
There were reports on May 14 that Aron’s responsibilities were changed. The Sixers denied it back then.
He was never involved in franchise’s basketball operations. He was more of a marketing guy.
