    76ers' Elton Brand: Will not dress for game Thursday night

    Brand will not be in uniform for Thursday's game against the Hawks, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. This may be a common trend for the newly signed center. While he did pass his physical, it appears that Brand will spend the night on the bench. The 76ers brought the 36-year-old to primarily fill a role of mentorship for the handful of young players on the team. Brand hasn't played since the end of last season so it could take him some time to get into game shape. Even if he does suit up for games, expect him to come off the bench in a very limited role.

    76ers' Elton Brand: Won't dress in Monday's game

    Brand won't be in uniform for Monday's game against the Timberwolves, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports. The 76ers cleared a spot on the 15-man roster by releasing Christian Wood on Monday, but Brand's deal with the team won't be official until he passes his physical. Expect Brand to be active for the 76ers' next game Thursday against the Hawks, though he doesn't figure to be a regular member of coach Brett Brown's rotation during his stay with the rebuilding squad.

    76ers' Elton Brand: Signs with 76ers

    Brand will likely sign with the 76ers on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. After announcing his retirement in August it appears that Brand is set to sign on with his former team. The 36-year-old played for the 76ers for four season from 2008-12. Last season he appeared in 36 games for the Atlanta Hawks, averaging 2.7 points, 2.8 rebounds, 0.7 blocks, 0.6 assists, and 0.5 steals in 14 minutes per game. The first-overall pick in the 1999 NBA Draft never lived up to the hype, mostly due to the vast history of injuries throughout his 16-year career. The 76ers will likely bring him on for bench depth and also to serve in mentorship role for Philly's young big men such as Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel, among others.

    Hawks' Brand interested in playing for Knicks, if he doesn't retire

    Hawks forward Elton Brand, a free agent this offseason, is reportedly interested in signing with the Knicks, according to the New York Post. That's if he decides to play at all in 2015-2016. Brand, 36, started just four games in his second season with the Hawks, and scored a career-low 96 points. He could be leaning towards retiring, rather than continuing his career. "I got to make a decision if I'm going to play and come back,'' Brand said. "[The Knicks] are definitely on the radar for sure. Yeah, I'm thinking about it. Moving on to something else, but I still also love to play and still feel good. I'm going to look at both options." Brand is a 16-year veteran and has averaged 16.1 points-per-game during his career.
