76ers, Adam Aron Deny Reports That CEO Had Been Fired
76ers PR Dir Michael Preston said that team CEO Adam Aron "had not been let go," despite "numerous reports" yesterday that cited sources. Preston: "Aron will continue to work for the 76ers. He has not been fired. All reports saying he was were wrong." However, it appears that Aron's "role with the team may change" (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 6/25).
Aron late last night on his Twitter account wrote, "Just minutes ago, I got off a plane from vacation in Africa and saw press reports. A la Mark Twain, rumors of my demise greatly exaggerated. ... I'm delighted to report that this is an immensely exciting time in my career. Moral of story: don't go on a faraway vacation!" (TWITTER.com, 6/25).
