 PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Elton Brand has signed with the Philadelphia 76ers, who have worked quickly to become a threat in the Eastern Conference.
The power forward instantly gives the Sixers the low post presence they sorely needed. Over his career, Brand has averaged 20.3 points and 10.2 rebounds.
Brand last week opted out of his contract with the Los Angeles Clippers. He agreed to a five-year deal with Philadelphia worth a reported $82 million.
The 76ers were able to sign Brand to a big deal because they sent forward Rodney Carney and a future No. 1 pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of a trade that cleared an additional $2 million in salary cap space.
