The 76ers and coveted Clippers free agent big man Elton Brand have reached a verbal agreement for a multi-year contract, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times.
The report, citing an NBA source who requested anonymity, says the deal is believed to be for five years and in the $80-million range.
Brand, a two-time All Star with L.A., opted out of the final year of his deal with the Clippers last week.
The move must come as a shocker to new Clippers PG Baron Davis, who agreed to sign a five-year, $65 million deal with L.A. last week, with expectations of returning to his hometown to pair up with Brand.
