Elton Brand-Aid Is Injured Again
Total Pro Sports- It is being reported that former first overall selection Elton Brand, will require season ending surgery on his injured shoulder. Brand is in his first year with the Philadelphia 76ers, who signed him to a massive 80 million dollar contract this past off season. He still has years 4 remaining on his contract and hopefully he will be able to return next season.
This marks the second straight year where the power forward has suffered a serious injury. Last year while he was a member of the Los Angeles Clippers, Brand’s season was cut short by an achilles injury. Now 29 years old, the aging star appears to be in the twilight of his once promising career. This season Brand was averaging only 13.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists for the 76ers. All of these numbers are well below his career averages.
