Sixers Shopping Brand?


Sixers president/general manager Ed Stefanski responded to an ESPN item quoting two anonymous GMs in the NBA saying that Elton Brand had been made available. "Not true," Stefanski said . . . The Jazz, with just nine players available, started Eric Maynor and Wes Matthews as its first all-rookie backcourt since Deron Williams and Andre Owens, Nov. 15, 2005. Maynor and Matthews (16) combined for 29 points on 11-for-25 shooting, 4-for-6 on three-pointers . . . Matthews is the son of Wes Matthews, who appeared in 465 games with six teams, including 14 as a Sixer in 1983-84 . . .

Sixers trying to move Elton Brand is reporting that the 76ers Elton Brand has been
made available to other teams for a trade before the deadline.

Iverson out longer than expected?

Allen Iverson had an MRI on his injured right foot, that kept him out of Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Raptors, and looks like he will be questionable for the next 3 games at least. It may be believed that the injury to his foot is worse than originally expected so AI does not want to come back too early and reactivate this injury and cause him to miss more time, especially now towards the end of the season and as Philly makes their playoff push.

Another Sixers Trade!!!

The Philadelphia 76ers completed their second trade in two days, sending forward Glenn Robinson to the New Orleans Hornets for Jamal Mashburn and Rodney Rogers.

Mashburn has been hurtall season but Rogers will add to the team. It looks like AI will have the help he needs and the Sixers will be very hard to beat.

Robinson hasn’t played this year but his contract comes off the books after the end of the season.

Webber a Sixer

Chris Webber was traded from Sacramento to the Philadelphia 76ers late Wednesday night as part of a stunning six-player deal. The Sixers sent Brian Skinner, Kenny Thomas and Corliss Williamson to the Kings for Webber, Matt Barnes and Michael Bradley.
