The 76ers and Bryan Colangelo are parting ways after an investigation into burner accounts linked to Colangelo reportedly were found to be created and run by his wife, Barbara.

The Ringer reported last week that Colangelo used five burner Twitter accounts to criticize players and coaches. The accounts mention top 76ers draft picks Markelle Fultz and Joel Embiid, as well as former Philadelphia players Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel, among others.

The 76ers opened an independent investigation into the allegations last Thursday and ownership met Tuesday evening to discuss the findings. The law firm tasked with the investigation connected the Twitter accounts in question to Colangelo's wife, Yahoo reported.

Colangelo denied the initial Ringer report and told Yahoo Sports last week that someone was "out to get" him.

Colangelo was hired by the 76ers in 2016. He previously worked as the general manager of the Suns and Raptors.
