Sixers after Brand as well
 
Brand seems to be very popular around the Free Agent world, and now with the team with the most cap space going after him, no one may know what'll happen. :reporter:

The offer came after the Los Angeles Clippers expected to reach an agreement with Brand, 29, as soon as Wednesday for a five-year deal worth about $70 million, the most the team could offer under salary cap considerations and still sign free-agent guard Baron Davis, whom the team had come to a verbal agreement with Tuesday, according to the sources. No deal can be announced until July 9, when next year's salary cap, expected to be about $58 million, is set. Also, teams are not permitted to speak on the specific status of free agents until that date.

The Philadelphia 76ers, one of the remaining teams with significant space under the expected cap, are also expected to enter the competition for Brand's services, creating a potential bidding war for the All-Star forward.

Everyone knew this was coming. It would really help them a lot. Major upgrade from Reggie Evans last year.

Gurk 07-03-2008 03:14 PM

it would help the sixers and plus they have the cap space to do it. also brand would fit in nice but i think he would rather sign with the clips orthe warriors

Just imagine our division if they get Brand. :tombstone:

If anybody pays that much for Brand they will be limiting themselves salary-wise in order to get a guy that just isn't quite at that level in terms of value. So I can imagine good and bad things coming for the Sixers if that happened.

Ya that would be something. New york and New jersey dont even have a shot at this next year

Gurk 07-03-2008 09:52 PM

yea they dont because right now those two teams are in a rebuilding mode to get better.

Major 07-04-2008 05:32 PM

Well New York would have no chance.

New Jersey meanwhile is the same team, only with Brook Lopez. You never know about them.

Its us that i'm worried about. We may finish 3rd in the division which isnt really that great.
