76ers 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.

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.

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.

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.
