A simple question for 76ers coach Brett Brown on whether he talks to general manager Elton Brand and others in the front office more during the trade deadline turned into a testimonial of the Sixers GM.
“...It is a relationship that I value very much,” Brown said of Brand before the Sixers’ Friday night matchup against the Chicago Bulls. “I think the world of him. The club should sign him to a 50-year contract.”
A 50-year contract? Was Brown trying to throw some bouquets to his boss?
He had more to say after his contract recommendation.
“He is just incredible to me because he doesn’t need to do this,” Brown said. “He is not poor.”
Brand spent 17 years in the NBA as a player. Basketball Reference estimates his career earnings to be $169,229,324.
