New York Knicks eye Sixers GM Elton Brand 

Post#1 » by Lou_23 » Thu Apr 2, 2020 9:46 am

(according to the New York Daily News’ Stefan Bondy)
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.

I was just wondering if we could trade him for a pick :)

The season returns.
The Sixers win the fake playoffs.
Elton Brand looks like a genius.
The Knicks can't contain themselves. They must have the Brand.
Josh Harris goes ehhhhh
James Dolan goes have a first round pick
We go yay

He keystone moves are giving away two of the worst contracts in the league. Perfect fit for the Knicks.

Gee...I don't know guys...New York gonna hafta pay up if they want the genius GM we have. I mean....Easily a first round pick for him. He can probably still play too, so they'd be getting another power forward on their roster. They love power forwards and they love Elton Brand. It's a perfect fit and i'm willing to bet a Ben Franklin that it happens.

It's funny when considering all the moves and dollars spent in last year's pivotal offseason that EB's best move seriously might've been signing Shake Milton to a longterm cap-friendly deal.
