Actually they're going for both J. Smith and Brand. But Brand is their first choice over the two.

You have a point there. But if they do this trade they'll have a lot of cap space and defintely enough for Brand. I don't believe the have spoken verbally with Brand or his agent yet. Philly is taking a big risk here. Because if they go through with this trade and Brand doesn't come to Philly then they are in trouble.
