NBA Trade Scenarios: Potential Deals Involving Philadelphia 76ers Elton Brand

Before I begin, I first want to say that Elton Brand has done a great job this season of rejuvenating himself into a new player. Not only did the entire team make a turnaround, but so did other players individually,especially Brand.

But even though Brand has been playing well and a key reason why the Sixers find themselves in the playoffs, he is getting old.

Brand is already 32, with three years left on his contract. You can do the math.

The Sixers may try to shop Brand after this season because of his age, but it will be extremely hard to find a buyer that will take on his hefty contract.

While looking through each team in the league, there are very few that I think would be willing to take on his contract.

If there were to be a trade involving Brand, it will most likely result in a "bad contract for bad contract" scenario.

But before we get into the scenarios, I want to say that some of these deals are kind of odd, but make sense in a way. The hard thing about making this was that we don't know who the Sixers are going to draft or if they will trade Andre Iguodala.

Either way, most likely none will happen, but rumors go around so quickly in the NBA that anything is possible.
