Sam Hinkie said on Twitter that he will teach at Stanford this year.
Hinkie has become a quasi-martyr for the analytics and tanking movement, though as usual Basketball Twitter has taken things much too far in that regard.
He probably deserves another crack as an assistant GM and eventually he should get another shot at the controls, but there’s no real evidence that his approach in Philadelphia deserves any special praise.
What is fair to say is that Philly probably should have seen their bet through for one more season before giving Jerry Colangelo’s son the reins.
8 | While I wait to see what’s next for us, I’ll teach a little (at Stanford), keep talking to the long list of people I can learn from,…

Update: Hinkie is going to be a guest speaker according to Kevin Draper of Deadspin. He won’t be teaching. This is a pretty Hinkie development.
