Brand will have a better season but JO will have more of an impact team vs team wise. Our improvement on the defensive side of the ball will trump anything Brand will do IMO because I dont think they can fully implement him without surrounding him with shooters and spacing the floor for him. They already have a good defence so he'll help a little there, but I think our defence making a big improvement puts JO over the top in the impact category. Brand will help Philly a lot , but I think JO fills more holes for us than Brand does Philly even though Brand is the better player.
