The Sixers are trying to dump Brand due to their current standings and it appears though they need to reshape their roster. Assuming the Sixers don't improve their record soon enough, Brand won't have a place in Sixers' rotation. So now here's a chance to fill the hole at PF. Brand's recent records are very impressive and it's time to take advantage of other teams misery.
Diaw + Diop + maybe a 2nd rounder as sweetner for Brand will definitely improve our team. However, I think the Sixers will ask for Mohammed instead of Diop due to the length of their contracts.
Brand's contract is long and luxurious but since our FO has acquired Jax, we shouldn't retract from any opportunity to improve our roster. Assuming we do get Brand, this coming offseason's move will be re-signing Felton only, and that shouldn't be difficult since salary cap is down.
I'm more than ready to say goodbye to Diaw. How about you guys? (any girls?)
