The Sixers have reached an agreement with Houston Rockets assistant general manager Sam Hinkie to become the team's new GM, according to multiple reports.

With current GM Tony DiLeo's departure and the impending retirement of president Rod Thorn, Hinkie will be the Sixers' top decision-maker on all things basketball, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

It also appears that owner Josh Harris got his man, as the deal is for multiple years, per Bob Cooney of the Daily News.

Hinkie, along with Rockets GM Daryl Morey, is known as one of the league's top minds when it comes to the use of analytics and advanced metrics to evaluate players.
