Adam Aron has stepped down as 76ers CEO and been replaced by former Madison Square Garden Sports president Scott O'Neil. Aron was part of the ownership group that bought the franchise in 2011. Aron will remain on the team's board of directors and said he has increased his ownership stake in the franchise. Led by majority owner Josh Harris and Aron, the new ownership group attempted to win back fans with slashed ticket prices, confetti cannons, and other fan-friendly promotions such as reconnecting with past stars. He worked as senior vice president for team marketing and business operations for the NBA from 2004 to 2008.
