The largest stumbling block keeping the Sixers away from the best fit for their team has been removed. Elton Brand has opted out of the final year
of his deal with the Los Angeles Clippers.
He's available, now it's time for Ed Stefanski to get on the phone, or better yet, get on a plane and convince Brand that if he comes to Philly he will be in the playoffs every year for the rest of his career and he can become part of a winning franchise for the first time. Adding Brand to the Sixers' young core would be ideal and he would have a chance to dominate in the Eastern conference. Ed has to find a way to get this done.
