76ers beat writer Kate Fagan on the Inqy is reporting that:
“An NBA source has confirmed that Stefanski has shopped power forward Elton Brand, last off-season’s blockbuster acquisition. That same source indicated Brand is unlikely to be traded because he has four years and $65 million left on his deal and has health concerns because his last two seasons ended in injury.”
Lets forget for a moment that Brand was the Sixers key acquisition in the last off-season and that Stefanski broke the bank to sign him. Our question is after the disastrous start to his career in Philadunkia nation, what NBA GM would be stupid enough to trad for Brand and take on his gigantic salary that would leave any organization cap strapped.
