Philly Sports World:
The Sixers and Kwame Brown have agreed to a two-year deal $6 million dollar contract. Brown a former number one draft pick by Washington in 2001 averaged around 6 points and 6 rebounds last season with Golden State. Browns season ended early needing surgery on chest muscle after only nine games.
Another scratch your head move by the Sixers this off-season. Brown is another 20 minute a game player that would be nice reserve on a championship team. Brown comes cheap which is good, because he will be sitting third behind Hawes and Allen.Similar Posts:
