Report: Philadelphia 76ers may part ways with forward Elton Brand

Brand has one year remaining on the five-year, $80 million deal he signed in 2008 as a free agent, but the $18.2 million he is due in 2012-13 apparently is too rich for a 33-year-old who averaged just 11.0 points in 29 minutes last season.
