Hawks add Elton Brand
The Hawks today announced the signing of Elton Brand, a 6í9″, 254-pound veteran who played his college ball at Danny Ferryís alma mater Ė Duke.

Brand gives the Hawks some frontcourt depth that they definitely need. As of right now, Al Horford and Paul Millsap are the only guaranteed forwards Atlanta has on the roster.

Brand will be entering his fifteenth season, and at this point in his career, itís probably safe to assume his minutes will be served primarily as a backup to both Horford and Millsap. Still, Brand brings a veteran presence and is a big body thatís hard to move. He stayed healthy last year, playing in 72 of Dallasís 82 games and starting 18, so he can be put in the starting role if the situation calls for it.

Re: Hawks add Elton Brand
Ferry said in his statement that the 6-foot-8 Brand "will give our frontcourt a great deal of versatility and we think he will be an outstanding fit to our program."

The No. 1 overall pick by Chicago in the 1999 NBA Draft, Brand has played with the Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers, Philadelphia 76ers and Mavericks.
