Is Brand now available?



Quote:
Philadelphia: Sixers GM Ed Stefanski is desperate to unload forward Elton Brand and the $66 million owed over the remaining four years of his crippling contract, sources say, but that will be incredibly difficult.
Quote:
no one believes Brand, who makes $14.8 million this season, has enough left to merit taking on that contract.

4yrs/66Mil for an injury prone big.


If he can be traded for a decent package then nobody should bitch about being able to move anyone we have for a decent package.

People never learn though, anyone can be moved for assets if the GM knows what he's doing. BC and many others have proven that over and over again. It always kills me when some here say "so & so no longer has tradeability"....

trading a mistake always has its problem. Heck yes BC did trade almost anything but he did have tons of gaffs on the way. Being a GM that constantly trades doesn't really make you a good GM

All i'm saying is pretty much anyone is tradeable. The fact that some here say trade Jose and then say that it won't happen because he's "untradeable" is insane.

Ya JO was tradeable. It took a pick to get him and took a pick to get rid of him.

Now thats a great trade

Between 03 and 06, he was pretty durable, but then he had achilles problem just before coming over to Philly and he hasn't been the same player since.
A Ty Thomas + Jerome James for Brand would be a better fit for the Bulls than Harrington would be.

philly signed brand after a seaosn where he played very limited games due to a ruptured achilies, very stupid

that being said i would take brand as the third big in the raps rotation over the soon to be shooting 42%, turnover prone, out of shape and almost equally overpaid hedo!!!

Well.... maybe if they threw in a first

In terms of serving short term needs, you might be right that Brand is a better fit than Harrington. It is possible. However, there is a very important reason why the Bulls would likely not do that. If the Bulls don't take on any new contract commitments for next year, this summer Chicago will only have a payroll of $37 million. Chicago management is trying to keep financial flexibility in case it has an opportunity to bring in a major free agent. Trading for Harrington is less risky because his contract expires at the end of the year. Harrington provides the Bulls with scoring to make them competitive this year, and his contract doesn't prevent them from pursuing other free agents next summer. It's all about flexibility right now.
