all the sixers needed was a PF... and now they got one in Brand. he'll easily put up 20/10.
but in order to be an elite team, the will need to re-sign Iggy.
if Iggy isnt on this team, i dont see them really effecting the east too much; even with this Brand acquisition.
Iggy is an all-around monster and stat stuffer. they gain a big man who can score and rebound, but they may end up losing a player who can score, rebound, play D, run the court and do so much. Look at the suns when they lost Marion... they looked old and slow.
Philly may fall into that same trap.
it would be a mistake to lose Iggy.
