Sixers Will Waive Elton Brand

The Philadelphia 76ers will use the amnesty clause to cut Elton Brand and the $18.2 million left on his contract.

The 76ers can’t use the amnesty clause until the league’s moratorium on signings ends July 11. Teams under the salary cap can place bids on Brand through the amnesty wire with the highest bid claiming him. Teams currently under the cap include the Dallas Mavericks, Portland Trail Blazers and Houston Rockets.
