Malik Rose Leaving Sixers Telecasts for Hawks Front Office Job
There aren't too many reasons to watch the Philadelphia 76ers broadcasts.
The broadcast crew of Marc Zumoff, Malik Rose and Molly Sullivan were three of them. It seems, however, that only two of those names will be returning next season.
Rose was named Manager of Basketball Operations of the Atlanta Hawks and will begin working with the team after Labor Day.
The former Drexel star, was just that on the telecasts in the last four seasons bringing his youthful and unique style coining such nicknames as "The Night Shift" when referring to 76ers bench players.
The team confirmed the news via Twitter when they posted a highlight of his broadcast career.
Rose, 40, brings two NBA Championships to Atlanta when he was a member of the San Antonio Spurs winning them in 1999 and 2003.
The Sixers have yet to name a replacement.
