The Sixers' loss is the Dallas Mavericks' gain.
The Mavericks won the bidding to obtain Brand off waivers, but did not reveal the winning bid. ESPN, citing anonymous sources, reported Friday that it was $2.1 million.
The Sixers decided to free up some salary-cap space by utilizing the one-time amnesty clause on Elton Brand. The $18.1 million he is owed in the final season of his 5-year deal does not count against their salary cap or luxury tax. Brand will still get that full amount, with Philadelphia paying any difference.
