Warriors offer Brand monster contract

Quote:
The Warriors have offered free agent Elton Brand a five-year deal worth between $85 and $90 million, according to league sources.

Brand, like Baron Davis, opted out of the final year of his contract just before Monday's deadline, giving up a guaranteed $16.4 million for next season.

At the time, Brand's agent David Falk told reporters that the move was designed to create some cap flexibility for the Clippers to add another top-line player.

The most the Clippers can offer Brand is a five-year deal worth about $70 million due to salary-cap restrictions - about $20 million less than the Warriors.

Brand, who had been close to re-signing with the Clippers, is expected to make a decision today.
Hmmm

All indications seem to say Brand agreed to a paycut so the Clippers could sign Davis, he seems to like playing in LA and wants to see their franchise get success.

But that's a lot of fucking dough.

convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

If he can kick the injury bug, he's worth it in my opinion.

Brand and Davis would be grat, but the attractive offer from warriors might be enough to get him in the bay area. Clips are offering him way less.

This is only happening if Clippers sign Davis. Which is happening so Davis and Brand swap.
