    Sixers believe Bryan Colangelo had no knowledge of Twitter accounts, source says

    While the Sixers' investigation into president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo's Twitter fiasco is ongoing, the general belief within the Sixers' organization is that they believe Bryan Colangelo's assertion he had no knowledge of the Twitter accounts, did not send the messages or had known the messages were being sent, according to a source.

    The Sixers are trying to decide if they can go forward with Colangelo after sensitive team information went public.

    The team's ownership group met for several hours Tuesday night to discuss the findings of the probe and whether they were grounds for termination, according to a report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The Sixers began to mull Colangelo's dismissal last Friday when the investigation started to become increasingly focused on his wife, Barbara Bottini, per a report by ESPN.

    The team announced last Wednesday it was launching an internal investigation regarding a report by The Ringer a day prior, which stated Colangelo was linked to five Twitter accounts that over time released confidential team information, criticized players and more.

    Colangelo has denied having any knowledge of the tweets, claiming he was "fully unaware" of the burner accounts. He even said last week to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo! Sports: "Someone's out to get me."
