76ers name DiLeo G.M., will work under Thorn for year

PHILADELPHIA — A person familiar with the decision says the Philadelphia 76ers have named Tony DiLeo general manager.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement was not yet made Friday.

DiLeo will work under team president Rod Thorn. Thorn has only one year left on his contract.

The Sixers spent the summer interviewing several candidates for the job. They decided to go with DiLeo, who has had several titles with the team for more than 20 years. He was their interim head coach in 2009 and led the Sixers to the playoffs.

DiLeo had been working as senior vice president and assistant general manager.
