PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Still living out of a suitcase in a hotel, Sam Hinkie has yet to really settle in Philadelphia.
But in four months, he's already become quite comfortable running the 76ers.
Hinkie has already made sweeping changes in his short tenure as Philadelphia's president and general manager, hiring coach Brett Brown, trading All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday, hoarding future draft picks, and making moves for low-cost, low-risk players who could blossom in the right system.
He's done it all with the simple mission of turning the Sixers into winners.
Just not this season.
In the NBA, fans like to call down seasons ``tanking,'' though the Sixers prefer to call the 2013-14 season simply the first step in a rebuilding process toward the franchise's first championship since 1983.
