Week In Review 1/3/16-1/9/16

The Sixers signed veteran power forward Elton Brand this week in an effort to add some veteran leadership to the young team. “I’m not coming here to hold Jahlil [Okafor]’s hand — or anyone else’s, for that matter — because that’s not what he needs,” Brand noted about his decision to join Philadelphia. “But I do believe my experience and wisdom can benefit him and my other young teammates. It’s about communicating with them like men, starting to grow together, and — hopefully, eventually — winning some ballgames. That’s what [GM] Sam Hinkie and I talked about when he approached me about joining the team, and what has me so excited about this opportunity.”

Here’s more from the week that was…
