The Dallas Mavericks claimed forward Elton Brand off the amnesty waiver wire on Friday, reports Yahoo! Sports and ESPN.com.

If Brand went unclaimed on waivers, he would have been free to sign as a free agent wherever he chooses. The Mavericks won the rights to Brand with a $2.1 million bid.

Brand, a two-time All-Star, will still make $18 million that the Sixers owe him next season, but he will have had to be offered to teams under the salary cap through the waiver process. Last season with the Philadelphia 76ers, he averaged 11 points and 7.2 rebounds in 60 games.

The Mavericks have signed center Chris Kaman and point guard Darren Collison to one-year deals this week and are still in pursuit of Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard.
