It has been confirmed that the Philadelphia 76ers have traded Rodney Carney, Calvin Booth and a future number one pick for a $2.8 million trade exception.
This move clears up $2.8 million in cap space for Philadelphia. The deal can’t be finalized until Wednesday according to NBA league rules.
The fact that Ed Stefanski had the cahones to include a future first round pick for almost $3 million worth of cap space tells me that he is going for all the glory NOW. I am thoroughly excited to see what happens in the days to come. Word around the blogosphere yesterday was that we would have a final word on Brand’s whereabouts within 24-48 hours. We are almost 24 hours closer to knowing his fate.

The Sixers are never going to get Elton Brand because Brand can’t be stupid enough to leave the Clippers now that Baron Davis is there. Plus I believe that the Sixers won’t get Josh Smith either because the Hawks won’t be stupid enough to let him go. The Sixers should just worry about their own free agents like Andre Iguodala and Louis Williams. But for some reason you don’t hear much about them right now. But they better watch out because I think Golden State or somebody is going to steal Iguodala away from them.
Well due to league tax rules the Sixers will first take care of free agents before their own players. You can go over the cap with your own players to re-sign them. From some light reading elsewhere today, it seems as though we are going after Brand first, and if not, we will then throw the HOUSE at Josh Smith.
Completely agree with you though. Its not worth anything if we cant keep our core nucleus. We need to add to what we have, not mix and match.
