Elton Brand has signed a multi-year extension to remain GM of the Sixers, per Shams Charania.
After an immensely disappointing season, there were questions about whether Brand would stick around, and the volume on those only increased after Daryl Morey was brought in. Charania reports that Morey's five-year deal will make him President of Basketball Operations (to be announced on Monday), and that Brand is safe for now. While this gives Brand some security, he still might be on the hot seat — teams rarely want lame-duck situations, so giving at least minimal assurance is commonplace in pro sports. We'll see how Philadelphia navigates their path forward after an offseason of huge upheaval in the top decision-making spots.
