Brand to Philly?

Move over Rocky, Philadelphia has a new championship contender in town.
According to ESPN.comís Marc Stein, the Sixers reached a verbal agreement on Tuesday night with sought after free-agent forward Elton Brand.

Philadelphia created enough salary cap room to afford the two-time All-Star earlier in the day, when it sent Rodney Carney, Calvin Booth and a future first-round pick to the Timberwolves for a future second-round selection.

After reaching the postseason for the first time since 2005 this past season, the addition of Brand could place the Sixers among the top title contenders in the Eastern Conference. With a front-court of Brand, Samuel Dalembert and Thaddeus Young, the Sixers not only have a formidable defensive presence, but an explosive offensive attack to hopefully go along with restricted free-agent Andre Iguodala.

I agree. All I have to say is after shipping AI away, this team is starting to head in the right direction. It won't be long until we start believing this team can break the drought.

Right now, we are like the Hornets of last year. Strong but not a big contender. We will see what this year has in store for us.
