Elton Brand Claimed By Mavericks Off Amnesty Waivers

Elton Brand has been claimed off amnesty waivers by the Dallas Mavericks, sources tell Adrian Wojnarowski. Brand was released by the Philadelphia 76ers under the amnesty provision in the NBA collective bargaining agreement.

Brand would have been owed $18 million next season if he had stayed on with the Sixers. The organization was able to dump the forward and his salary under the provision, clearing cap space.

There is no word yet on what kind of contract Brand is working out with the Mavs. The 33-year-old forward is still plenty productive. Last season he played 28.9 minutes per game, averaging 11 points and 7.2 rebounds.
