Warriors Offering Elton Brand $90 Million?


Warriors Offering Elton Brand $90 Million?The Clippers lured away the Warriors’ best player.

Now Golden State is hoping to return the favor.

Flush with cap space after Davis’ sudden exit, the Warriors have offered free agent Elton Brand a five-year deal worth between $85 and $90 million, according to league sources.

Brand, like Davis, opted out of the final year of his contract just before Monday’s deadline, giving up a guaranteed $16.4 million for next season. At the time, Brand’s agent, David Falk, told reporters that the move was designed to create some cap flexibility for the Clippers to add another top-line player.
