The sand could be running through the hour-glass for Sixers President of Basketball Operations Bryan Colangelo.

According to ESPN NBA insiders Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe, Sixers ownership is "seriously considering" Colangelo's dismissal from the team.

As a Philadelphia 76ers internal probe into anonymous Twitter accounts has become increasingly focused on the wife of president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo, franchise ownership is seriously considering Colangelo's dismissal, league sources told ESPN.

According to the report, Sixers ownership is "flushed with embarrassment and anger -- and Colangelo fighting for his professional life."

While there is no hardcore substantial evidence that says any of the "burner accounts" are in fact being run by Colangelo, the arrows are strongly pointing to the direction that it could be someone he knows.  Whether he would have any knowledge of that person tweeting these things or not, is not obviously not clear at this time.

However, the report does suggest his wife could be behind at least some of the tweets.

Colangelo, a two-time past NBA Executive of the Year, has discussed with ownership and upper management the possibility that his wife, Barbara Bottini, may have been involved in the postings of the tweets from so-called burner accounts, league sources said.

Hold on tight Sixers fans, this ending could be coming soon.
