Former Boston guard Jameer Nelson promoted to GM of 76ers’ Delaware Blue Coats

Former Boston Celtics guard Jameer Nelson has been appointed as the general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers’ G League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats per recent reporting from ESPN senior writer Adrian Wojnarowski.

This new role is another rung climbed in Nelson’s steadily advancing career within the Sixers organization, where he has been actively involved for the past three years. Prior to this new role, Nelson served as the assistant general manager for the Blue Coats as he learned the ropes of the Sixers’ G League team, and was also a scout for the 76ers.

Prosper Karangwa, the outgoing general manager of the G League squad, has transitioned to a different position within the Philadelphia 76ers’ front office.

Nelson’s appointment carries special significance for the Philadelphia area, as he has strong ties to the city as a local player who played collegiately for his hometown Saint Joseph’s Hawks.
