“It’s important that the fans, players, coaching staff, our staff here at the Sixers remain healthy and we do everything we can,” 76ers general manager Elton Brand said. Former Sixers star, and current Miami Heat guard, Jimmy Butler popped off at Brown on a podcast and criticized the way the Sixers coach used him in the postseason. Who played the final 55 games of last season with the Sixers, said, “On any given day, me as a person, as a player, I didn’t know who the was in charge. I think that was my biggest thing.”
Butler said players watched film sessions in silence and became peeved when he said he learned the organization wanted Brown to “Control” the All-Star guard. The Sixers said of Wednesday’s ticket holders: “We will manage on a case-by-case basis and work closely with our fans toward finding another game for them to attend in the future.”
