Elton Brand is expected to retire after Philadelphia's regular season concludes.
"I think this is it," he said. A surprise signing for the Sixers, Brand will finish his solid career with averages of 15.9 points, 8.9 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 1.7 blocks on an even 50.0 percent shooting if he doesn't play another minute this year. Brand enjoyed his most productive stretch with the Clippers from 2003-07, averaging at least 20 points and nine rebounds in each of those four years. Apr 11 - 11:09 AM

Elton Brand will start at center for Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans, sending Carl Landry back to the bench.

The 76ers will roll out a starting five of Ish Smith, Isaiah Canaan, Robert Covington, Jerian Grant and Brand for Tuesday's game, and while Brand will be earning the start tonight, he's not a very attractive target in most leagues with Nerlens Noel (knee) also returning to action.

Elton Brand scored two points with 10 rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 23 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

He played 24 minutes on Friday, so 47 minutes in two days for the 37-year-old Brand is pretty impressive. Still, he's not really worth owning in most leagues.
Apr 2 - 10:03 PM

Elton Brand turned back the clock in 24 minutes against the Hornets on Friday with 13 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

He played down the stretch in this game with the 76ers sort of in it until the end. The 76ers playing on a back-to-back Saturday doesn't bode well for Brand to duplicate this playing time and output. You would have to be streaming out of desperation on Saturday.
Apr 1 - 9:26 PM

Elton Brand scored 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting vs. the Warriors on Sunday, adding three rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 17 minutes off the bench.

The veteran was acquired to lead the young Sixers by example off the court, but he was pressed into a substantial role tonight with Jahlil Okafor, Nerlens Noel and Jerami Grant all ailing. It's great to see EB healthy and productive, but he's not worth fantasy owners' attention.
Mar 27 - 10:38 PM

Elton Brand played eight minutes against the Blazers on Saturday with two points, two rebounds and one steal.

He will be backing up Carl Landry while Richaun Holmes (Achilles) and Nerlens Noel (knee) are out. Obviously, you can steer clear unless you're in a 50-man league.

Elton Brand is focused on setting a positive example within the Sixers locker room.

"Show the effort, the little things, the right spots on the floor to be, that hustle, that effort every play, and being at the nail defensively," Brand said. "It’s one thing to talk about it, but to show the effort, I think the young guys can see that, and it can help them grow." Brand is in Philly to help establish a winning culture, not to provide fantasy value in the year 2016.
Mar 14 - 10:35 AM

Elton Brand played 15 minutes on Saturday against the Pistons with 10 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block.

What year is it again? Brand got hot in the first quarter with eight points in that frame and didn't do much else. It's pretty cool to see him get run, but he's only a desperation stream in very deep leagues.
Mar 12 - 10:15 PM

Elton Brand played seven minutes against the Nets with two rebounds, one steal and one block.

He could be in the rotation on Saturday with a ton of carnage for the Philly frontcourt. Brand is not a fantasy option in almost any league, though.
Mar 11 - 9:33 PM

Elton Brand scored eight points with four rebounds in his season debut against the Heat on Friday.

Hey, he finally played. Brand signed with the 76ers back on Jan. 4 and this is just an example of how banged up the team is. He can remain on the wire.
Mar 4 - 10:36 PM

Elton Brand is not likely to actually step foot on the court for the 76ers this season.

"My first reaction is no, he doesn’t need to get into a game to provide our team tremendous value," coach Brett Brown said. "It’s just that the leadership he provides all over the place has nothing to do with 48 minutes." Brand has been on the active roster just once this season, but he picked up a DNP-CD during that game. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 3 - 10:20 AM

Elton Brand did not travel to Detroit, and he will return to the inactive list for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons.

Brand signed with Philly to be a steadying presence in the locker room, but he's yet to play a single minute for the 76ers this season. That's unlikely to change, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Jan 27 - 6:28 PM

Elton Brand has been placed on the active roster for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns with Jahlil Okafor (gastroenteritis) and JaKarr Sampson (upper respiratory infection) out.

Even if Brand plays, he's not going to earn enough minutes tonight to matter in any league. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 26 - 6:39 PM

Elton Brand will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Hawks.

The 76ers didn't sign Brand to give him major minutes, so he'll be on the inactive roster most nights. He has no fantasy value.
Jan 7 - 5:38 PM

76ers head coach Brett Brown said Elton Brand is in great shape.

While Brown said Brand looks like he's still 22, the 36-year-old won't be a regular part of the Sixers rotation and can be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues.
