The Sixers have named Elton Brand as their new GM, with an introductory press conference slated for Thursday.
Brand had a pretty quick rise through the front office ranks but impressed the Sixers throughout the interview process. He leaves behind his VP of Basketball Ops position but Philadelphia finally has a GM after the Bryan Colangelo fiasco left them shorthanded at the worst time of the year. Brett Brown can now return his attention to coaching.
