Meh, this was the most coveted GM position in a while and it just feels like there should've been better options available, or at least more experienced. Maybe Brand is a natural GM and it all works out but there were some very interesting candidates on Philly's list with more experience imo.

I can get down with it.

A Process guy, well known and respected around the league by players and FOs. VP of operations. GM of the Bluecoats in the G league. Adds some continuity to what Hinkie/Brown and Big Collar have been trying to implement in the team and organization.

It's a bit weird pick, but he must be really wanting it. He made a 170mill during his career. He could pick a much easier job and just chilled. Instead, he went for a job that is 24/7 and not easy at all. From that, I guess he will be good.

They're the ones in the room with the guy. If you think he's the real deal, lock him up at age 39.

He was such a good player. That has to mean something when he's negotiating with guys in the league.

The Sixers want to compete for a title in the next few seasons. I bet Elton Brand has the inside track on some veterans who might want to come out to Philly.

If only this happened a decade plus ago, he would've done a better job and not signed himself to that horrendous contract

I like it. Brand gets a crack at one of the best looking current jobs in the NBA. Philly going with one of their own, someone they know and injecting some new blood instead of hiring another retread off the GM carousel like Colangeloser.

The thing is the sixers wanted a GM who wouldnt mind not having the final say and wanted to limit the decision making. They interviewed multiple candidates who are more experienced and capable but those guys wanted more say and rightfully so. Brand probably agreed to be a puppet gm and he is well liked around the leauge so I don't mind this move at all.
