The Warriors have offered free agent Elton Brand a five-year deal worth between $85 and $90 million, according to league sources.
Brand, like Baron Davis, opted out of the final year of his contract just before Monday's deadline, giving up a guaranteed $16.4 million for next season.
At the time, Brand's agent David Falk told reporters that the move was designed to create some cap flexibility for the Clippers to add another top-line player.
The most the Clippers can offer Brand is a five-year deal worth about $70 million due to salary-cap restrictions - about $20 million less than the Warriors.
Brand, who had been close to re-signing with the Clippers, is expected to make a decision today.
All indications seem to say Brand agreed to a paycut so the Clippers could sign Davis, he seems to like playing in LA and wants to see their franchise get success.
But that's a lot of fucking dough.
