Clippers to match Brand's offer sheet...

Postby Roscoe on Fri Jul 18, 2003 9:08 am

The Clippers notified Elton Brand's agent Thursday that they intend to retain the power forward's services by matching the six-year, $82.2-million offer sheet he signed with the Miami Heat.

"We told them that before they got an offer sheet," Clipper Executive Vice President Andy Roeser said. "That won't be a surprise when it happens.

"We've said all along that we intend to match the offer on Elton and we shared that with them again today."

Looks like they're getting their act together and signing their Free Agents...

Well it looks like Donald Sterling finally wants to KEEP a player that can produce. I hope Elton's career doesn't get ruined by getting held back on the Clippers though, because he could turn into something special at the PF position.

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

BEST VIDEO EVER ... AND AND THE SECOND BEST.
