Found July 20, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Center Kwame Brown officially signed with the 76ers for a two-year deal reported to be worth $6 million. It continues busy movement along Philadelphia's front court, with Spencer Hawes re-signed and Darryl Watkins waived after being acquired in a trade. Brown made $6.75 million as a member of the Warriors last season. He played in just nine games before he tore his pectoralis major -- the largest muscle in the chest which attaches to the shoulder -- and had surgery in January. In 11 pro seasons, Brown averaged 6.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. Golden State was his sixth NBA team since 2005 when he was drafted No. 1 by the Washington Wizards out of Glynn Academy in South Carolina. Brown was the first high school player to be drafted first overall in the NBA draft.
