Sixers promoting Elton Brand to GM

The Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly promoted Elton Brand middle from VP of basketball operations to general manager. More

Brand will replace Bryan Colangelo who stepped down as the general manager of the team after allegations surfaced that he was operating burner Twitter accounts which released private medical information and spoke negatively about 76ers players.

In 17 years in the National Basketball Association as a player for the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers, 76ers, Dallas Mavericks, and Atlanta Hawks, Brand averaged 15.9 points and 8.5 rebounds on 50 percent shooting.

With the hiring of Brand, Brett Brown can now shift his entire focus on drawing up the X's and O's for the Sixers and preparing them for another season.

The two-time All-Star finished with career averages of 15.9 points and 8.5 rebounds per game in mostly starring roles with the Chicago Bulls (1999-2001), Los Angeles Clippers (2001-08) the 76ers (2008-12, 2016), Dallas Mavericks (2012-13) and Atlanta Hawks (2013-15).

"This is not something that interests me. And I hope the coach has got a little bit to do with it".

Guardiola will serve a touchline ban when Lyon visit the Etihad Stadium after he was sent off during the second leg of last season's Champions League quarter-final loss to Liverpool . "Up to now, the preparation has been completely normal".

In addition to Brown, who reiterated earlier this week that he didn't want the jobs of both head coach and general manager, Brand will have on hand two 76ers executives who also reportedly interviewed for the position, assistant GM Ned Cohen and senior vice president of player personnel Marc Eversley. "We will have, to the best of my knowledge, a general manager appointed, announced by the start of the season".

The 76ers may have factored in the potential of the former Duke star and No. 1 overall pick in the 1999 draft to be a successful recruiter in free agency. For his part, Brand has completed a swift ascent, having been hired in December 2016 as a player development consultant and promoted in August 2017 to GM of the team's G-League affiliate, then named last month as the executive vice president of basketball operations. Brown said he was looking "for a partner" in personnel moves with the new GM. "I've always had a voice here", Brown said.

"I think we would all be naive to think free agents choose a basketball program because of a general manager", Brown said. Following the dismissal of disgraced former general manager Bryan Colangelo back in June, Brown served as the franchise's interim GM. "They come because of Joel and Ben".

Brown, who took the 76ers from 10 wins to the third seed in the Eastern Conference in just two seasons, agreed in May to a three-year contract extension that runs through the 2021-2022 season.
