Elton Brand PF/C ATL 6 Days

Brand has signed a one-year, $2 million contract to remain with the Hawks, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Brand played 73 games, including 15 starts, for the Hawks last season and averaged 5.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks in 19.4 minutes. The 35-year-old former No. 1 overall pick will continue as a reserve forward for Atlanta this season, but it's clear Brand's fantasy value is at an all-time low since entering the league in 1999.

The Hawks and Knicks have both expressed interest in unrestricted free agent Elton Brand.

Brand confirmed in April that he hopes to return of his 16th NBA season, and it seems he'll get his wish with at least a few teams vying for his services. He averaged 5.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.2 blocks last season and will fill a niche as a backup big man, but he's no longer an appealing fantasy option at age 35.

Elton Brand said on Monday that he intends to play next season.

"My body feels good," Brand said. "I'm already training for next season." He is 34 years old and is coming off a fairly productive season, playing in 73 games. Brand has struggled to stay healthy for much of his career, but he'll enter free agency and could get some attention on a short-term deal.

Elton Brand said during his exit interview on Monday that he is undecided on whether he will play next season.

Brand, the number one overall pick in 1999, finished his 15th season in the NBA after the Hawks were eliminated from the playoffs on Saturday. He is set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and will likely have to sign for the veteran minimum if he wants to continue his career next season.

Elton Brand kept putting up defensive numbers on Friday, posting two steals and four blocks to go with four points and three boards.

Per usual, Brand did his damage in 22 minutes and regardless of Pero Antic's status he's a solid add if you're targeting big man stats.

Elton Brand drew a start in place of Pero Antic vs. the Celtics on Wednesday, scoring 13 points with 13 boards, three assists, three steals and one block in 33 minutes.

Antic's sore ankle has been an issue before and he could be looking at missing more time. Brand's minutes had been fairly low heading into tonight, so he could be somewhat fresh for the stretch run. Nothing in certain since Antic could be back as soon as Friday, but Brand is at least worth a look for owners needing a big man.

Elton Brand did not play on Saturday night vs. the Wizards.

He played 30 minutes on Thursday and the Hawks might have just rested him tonight. Brand is no spring chicken anymore and fantasy owners should look elsewhere now that Pero Antic is back.

Elton Brand double-doubled against the Blazers during Thursday's 100-85 loss with 11 points, 12 boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

He was banging in the paint and has really done well in establishing position close to the basket. Brand used to be a guy who could beat guys from 15 feet away and he's done a nice job of adapting to his aging frame. With Pero Antic (ankle) out and day-to-day, Brand is worth a look for anyone needing a big man.

Elton Brand scored eight points on 4-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and three blocks in just 19 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Jazz.

The Jazz are struggling badly and that partly explains the uptick in production here, but Brand needs to do something like this again to deserve consideration in 12-14 team formats.

Elton Brand came off the bench for 18 minutes and had eight points, five rebounds, two assists and zero blocks in Saturday's loss to the Clippers.

Brand has been pretty fun to own with Pero Antic and Paul Millsap injured for the Hawks, but both players are back and in the starting lineup, meaning Brand's run is over. If they get hurt again, Brand will re-emerge as a fantasy factor, but if not, he's not worth holding.
