Elton Brand to return for 16th NBA season
Veteran forward, former Hawk, Sixer, and Clipper says he can still play.
Veteran NBA journeyman and Atlanta Hawks forward told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution this week that he will return for another season instead of retiring.
Elton Brand intends to play a 16th NBA season.
The veteran center, who spent last season with the Hawks after signing a one-year contract, will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Monday that he has no plans to retire.
Brand averaged 5.7 points and 4.9 rebounds this season for the Hawks as a backup, but looked spry and played solid defense.
As a free agent, he's going to attract offers. Guys with his experience who can still move at all get picked up for their locker room presence and defensive ability alone. He wants to play, won't cause issues, and can still be effective. He shot 54 percent from the field last season, and carried a 14.0 PER. Atlanta will have the cap space to bring him back, if they so choose.
