Elton Brand (42)

The former Blue Devil Elton Brand just got a major promotion to general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers fired GM Bryan Colangelo after rumors swirled that Colangelo’s wife created burner accounts on Twitter. It’s crazy because Elton Brand was playing for the (then terrible) Sixers just a few years ago. He was a two-time All-Star in his seventeen-year career, which ended with the Sixers, and served most recently as Vice President of Basketball Operations this past season. At 39, he’s one of the younger and certainly less experienced GMs in the league but we have no doubt what he can do. He’s got potential to work with and a fellow Blue Devil in JJ Redick as one of the veterans. Congratulations to him. Bleed blue.
