The 76ers have officially installed Elton Brand as the new GM of their G-League affiliate.
"It’s a totally different mindset and a totally different type of energy," Brand said at his introductory press conference. "I’m discussing players and trades and the business side of it. I was exhausted yesterday. Basketball is one thing but it was a different kind of tired. I’m looking forward to growing in that aspect." Brand retired from playing professionally just a year ago, but his passion for the game wouldn't permit a lengthy layoff.
