Are Sixers Shopping Elton Brand?


Elton Brand has an appreciation for the business side of the NBA. He understands the world of instant messaging, chat sessions and the sort of speculation that always surfaces as the trade deadline draws near.
That’s how the 76ers’ comebacking power forward is dealing with an ESPN.com chat-session comment by Chad Ford, saying sources have told him Brand is available.

"The question is, given how poorly he’s played this year and his huge contract, does anybody want him?" Ford asked.

The real question is, whether the initial premise has any legs.
