Sixers use amnesty clause on Elton Brand, sign Nick Young

The amnesty clause wasn’t just a one shot deal only available at the top of last season. The 76’ers have exercised it to rid themselves of Elton Brand and the $18 million they’d owe him for next season. You know how it works, Brand still gets paid his money but the contract disappears from the official team salary books.

The 76ers need that space for the new contract bring of Spencer Hawes and to make room for ex-Clipper,  Nick Young, whose agreed to a one-year $6 million deal.

Brand averaged 11 points and 7.6 rebounds for the Sixers last season some team will scoop him up but at a more appropriate price point.
