The Philadelphia 76ers have hired Houston Rockets executive Sam Hinkie to be their new president of basketball operations and general manager, sources told ESPN.com Friday.

The 76ers have hired former Rockets second-in-command Sam Hinkie as their new general manager, writes Henry Abbott. TrueHoop

Hinkie, who interviewed with the 76ers for a similar job last year, fits team owner Joshua Harris' desire to use more analytics when it comes to player evaluation.

statistics are great,

but a strong intuition wins the day, every day,

statistics only tell you what is plain to see for those with the eyes to see it!!
