I always liked Elton Brand. I wish the NBA just asked him about this before the publicly launched an investigation:

"No issue," Brand told ESPN on Monday. "I have a great relationship with Ben and [his agent] Rich [Paul] and we expect him to be a Sixer for a long time. He has taken interest in chatting with some of the game's all-time greats and we're supportive.

"I had brief dialogue with [Lakers GM] Rob Pelinka, who I've known for a long time, but nothing is planned. Our collective focus is on making a postseason push.

"Again, we're not sweating this -- end of story."

My biggest issue with the Magic/Simmons situation is why Magic felt compelled to reveal it publicly to begin with. Even though the Sixers privately told him not to do it a month ago. Very juvenile behavior from someone of his stature, who just yesterday, flew in to Philly and asked the kids to grow up.

Agreed, they always embellish and blow up stuff, centered around the lakers. But I’m also cognizant of the fact that other front office execs keep stuff close to their chest...unlike the flamboyance shown by our guys. We like to announce everything to the world even before it happens. It’s free for all information.
