Sixers amnesty Brand

The Sixers have waived EB
PHILADELPHIA, PA. –  The Sixers have officially waived forward Elton Brand and designated him as the team’s amnesty player.

Brand (6-foot-9, 254) was signed as a free agent by the Sixers on July 9, 2008.  In four seasons with the team, he appeared in 246 games with 221 starts, averaging 13.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.33 blocks and 1.01 steals in 31.5 minutes per game while shooting 49 percent from the floor and 74.4 percent from the line.

"On behalf of the Philadelphia 76ers, I want to thank Elton for his contributions to our organization and city," said Sixers President of Basketball Operations Rod Thorn.  "Decisions of this nature are never easy, particularly when it involves a player of Elton's talent and character.  He worked tirelessly for the overall good of the team every time he put on a Sixers uniform and we wish him nothing but the best."
