For over a decade, the father-son team of Jerry and Bryan Colangelo was one of the most formidable managerial duos in the NBA.

It looks like Jerry and Bryan are about to put their heads back together -- only this time, on the other side of the country.

On Wednesday, NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported Bryan Colangelo is set to become the new general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers, replacing Sam Hinkie, who stepped down Thursday.

The 50-year-old Bryan Colangelo served as the Phoenix Suns' GM from 1994-2006 under his father and team owner Jerry Colangelo. The Suns made 10 playoff appearances and had six 50-plus-win seasons under Bryan Colangelo, who was named NBA Executive of the Year for the 2004-05 and 2006-07 seasons.

Jerry Colangelo sold the Suns to current team owner Robert Sarver in 2004. Bryan Colangelo resigned as Suns GM two years later and accepted a job as Raptors GM one day after his resignation.

He resigned from his role with the Raptors in 2013 and has served as an NBA scout and consultant since then.

In December, Jerry Colangelo accepted a job as the 76ers' chairman of basketball operations. The 76ers currently own the NBA's worst record.
