Re: Wait... Elton Brand is a free agent?
JO is worthless. Trying to acquire him would be almost as bad as the colossal error Pax made in pursuing Wallace. O'Neal is not only injury prone, but his best years are almost certainly behind him and he is coming from a dysfunctional organization in Indiana (where I'm from and have witnessed the volcanic eruption that is the Pacers first hand) where he has self imploded. Brand is still a stud and getting him automatically places us in the upper echelon of the East. He came back from a torn ACL and played excellent basketball at the end of the year, proving he hasnt lost a step. He is a team player with a great head on his shoulders who would address a vital hole that needs filling asap (that would have been sufficiently patched had we not traded Aldridge)
