Hey according to the ESPN Trade Machine, it works. God I hope this happens, as much as I like Andre Miller, I would love to see Baron Davis running this offense. Imagine the starting lineup of Baron Davis, Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, the rook Mareese Speights, and Marcus Camby. Look out Boston, you got something to worry about in the Atlantic now. PULL THE TRIGGER STEFANSKI!

According to an ESPN.com report, the Warriors may be considering making an offer to 76ers restricted free agent Louis Williams.
The ESPN story quoted one “plugged-in” source as believing the Warriors “are planning to make a “big run’ at (Williams).”
Golden State is roughly $4.5 million under the salary cap after the Lakers declined to match the Warriors’ offer sheet to Ronny Turiaf, meaning it could offer Williams as much as $26 million over five years.
The Sixers would have seven days to match a signed offer sheet for Williams or Andre Iguodala, who is also a restricted free agent. Golden State is looking for another point/combo guard to help Monta Ellis share the load after Baron Davis signed with the LA Clippers.
In other Sixer News: The Sixers inked Marreese Speights, the 16th overall pick in June’s NBA draft on Friday.
Speights, a 6-foot-10 PF from Florida, will earn about $2.6 million in the first two years of the contract. The team holds an option for two additional years.

Marc Stein iof ESPN with a little music to my ears (eyes):
NBA front-office sources told ESPN.com on Tuesday that Brand has informed the Sixers that he will accept a five-year deal worth an estimated $82 million and spurn what was presumed to be a slam-dunk return to the Los Angeles Clippers to hook up with Clipper-to-be Baron Davis.
The Sixers cannot formally sign Brand before midnight, with Wednesday serving as the first day that NBA teams can officially complete signings and trades after the lifting of a league wide moratorium which began July 1.
Sick pickup by Ed Stefanski which makes me very excited about what lies ahead for this team. Ed, a Philadelphia native, came in here with a mission; to bring the basketball fans of the City of Brotherly Love something that has not graced the court for a long time here in Philly, a true low post presence, and he did just that. Not since the days of Charles Barkley and Moses Malone have we had a dominant scorer that commands attention at the four-spot. I sense Ed has something else up his sleeve and I have a feeling there are more great moves ahead before the beginning of the 2008-2009 NBA season for YOUR PHILADELPHIA 76ERS.
