Can we trade Josh Harris?
Don't see how a new GM would change anything unless they bring in a big name who is explicitly promised complete autonomy, over ownership, the coach and the players. And ownership only just gave Elton more power this season. In NY he'd have less because Leon Rose is in charge (the Sixers don't have a president - that is de facto Harris).
Plus, if Elton's job is in jeopardy that probably means Brown's isn't.
But really, this sounds more like Rose (who was Embiid's agent) is just putting out feelers because he likes Brand. Heck, maybe he likes Brand enough that he's just putting this out there to make Brand seem more valuable.
I suspect that the virus has bought everyone another year but seems more likely we get a new coach. It's not like Brand has ever hired one, or even had the authority to fire Brown before this year.
