Leon Rose might look to Philadelphia for his new right-hand man. According to a league source, Elton Brand has been targeted by Rose as a candidate for Knicks GM. Brand, 41, is currently the Sixers GM and is under contract next season, complicating any designs of bringing him to New York. The source said Rose wanted to see if Brand was dismissed after the playoffs.
Keith Pompey: Sixers general manger Elton Brand is reportedly a candidate for the #New York #Knicks GM job. However, a Sixers team source noted that Brand is under contract with Philly past this season. The source added the team is very happy with the work he’s done as Philly’s GM
Keith Pompey: The #Sixers source cited Brand’s leadership and strong working relationships with players, agents and executives around the league. Sounds like the #Sixers aren’t trying to let EB go.
