The Philadelphia 76ers have parted ways with Vice President of Basketball Operations Alex Rucker, sources told Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Rucker was reassigned from his role after the team hired Peter Dinwiddie from the Pacers.

Rucker was "heavily involved" in the team's decision-making, according to sources.

Elton Brand recently signed a multiyear extension as general manager, with Daryl Morey set to be introduced as President of Basketball Operations on Monday.
