PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia 76ers team president Ed Stefanski refused to say coach Eddie Jordan’s job was safe for the rest of the season with the team off to a 10-24 start.

Stefanski says the entire organization is accountable for a slide that has left the Sixers with the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference entering Friday night’s game against Toronto.

Stefanski took some of the blame, saying Philadelphia’s record shows, “I haven’t done a real good job so far.” He says he feels no real pressure to make a big deal before the NBA’s Feb. 18 trade deadline.

Jordan is in the first year of a three-year deal, and his Princeton offense has fizzled. Many of Stefanski’s moves in two-plus seasons as president and GM have not panned out.
