Bryan Colangelo is back in Philly. I spoke with him at Philly airport. He told me he stands by his Ringer statement and is “fully unaware of anything” related to the messages. I asked him if he had any knowledge any of those tweets were being sent. He told me “zero” Bryan I’m sure will be meeting with the Sixers about their investigation. #sixers #bryancolangelo #philaunite #trusttheprocess #nba
