ELTON BRAND says he would have loved to return, but he also knew the Sixers had to make changes if they were going to improve. Those changes included the Sixers opting to use their amnesty clause on Brand, who was claimed by the Dallas Mavericks late Friday. Dallas' winning bid was reportedly $2.1 million, but Brand still will be paid the full $18.1 million he is owed. The Sixers will pay the balance, but the money will not count against the salary cap. The Sixers also are not bringing back guards Lou Williams and Jodie Meeks.

Former 76er Elton Brand has fond memories of the four seasons he played in Philadelphia, and even though the team parted ways with Brand by using the amnesty clause on him, he has no hard feelings. "They are great players, great coaches and - even more important - they are great people," Brand said Tuesday morning as the Dallas Mavericks prepared to face the Sixers that night at the Wells Fargo Center. "And you hope that doesn't change because that could bring a team down. " "But as long as they have great guys who are willing to grow, willing to get better and willing to listen, the franchise will be all right," said Brand, who averaged 13.3 points and 7.4 rebounds in his time with the Sixers.

76ers Notes MIAMI - Power forward Elton Brand watched the 76ers' 106-90 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night with his mother. Brand, who was suspended one game by the NBA for his flagrant foul against Washington's JaVale McGee , was in Toronto with his team, but per league rules was not allowed into the Air Canada Centre. "My mom was in town, so we actually watched the game together," Brand said before Friday night's game against the Miami Heat. On Friday, Brand returned to the Sixers' starting lineup.

For once, the 76ers didn't have to go through an agonizing fourth-quarter fade leading to another disappointing and frustrating defeat. No, this one was over long before crunch time. The Los Angeles Clippers controlled the game from late in the first quarter through fourth-quarter garbage time, getting 24 points from Elton Brand and 20 from Cuttino Mobley en route to a 99-89 victory over the Sixers last night at the Staples Center. Playing for the third consecutive game without Allen Iverson, who is suffering from a sprained right foot, the Sixers lost their third game in a row and sixth in the last seven.

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.

The Los Angeles Clippers have acquired center Marcus Camby from the Denver Nuggets in exchange for a future second-round draft pick. The Clippers were in need of a big man after losing free agent Elton Brand to the 76ers. Camby led the NBA in blocked shots with 3.61 per game last season, only the second player in league history to do so in three straight seasons. He averaged 9.1 points and 13.1 rebounds playing a career-best 34.9 minutes per game for the Nuggets. Camby was the league's defensive player of the year in 2006-07.

After turning back Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night, the 76ers reported for practice yesterday afternoon at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine as a first-place team, even if they were only at .500. The Sixers' 85-81 win over the Lakers squared their record at 3-3. After having dropped their first three games, they were tied with New Jersey for the top spot in the NBA's Atlantic Division. They took sole possession of first place when the Nets lost to Houston last night.

BEFORE LAST WEEK, the main question posed to 76ers coach Doug Collins and his team was about the next 2 weeks, which included seven games against some of the top teams in the league. Wins against Orlando and Chicago were impressive, before Friday night's 20-point loss to the Miami Heat. In that game, the Sixers stayed close before a 15-0 run by Miami in the final quarter allowed it to pull away. After the game, forward Andre Iguodala put it best: "You have to give [Miami]

WHEN HIS NAME is announced at the Wells Fargo Center these days, there is mostly an appreciative applause, at first. Fans realize that Elton Brand, signed to a 5-year, $80 million contract here in the summer of 2008 and ultimately bought out (for $18 million) 4 years later, played as hard as he could each minute on the floor here and carried himself as a true professional throughout. He was a big reason the team came within one game of advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2012, losing to Boston in Game 7. He is now a part of the surprising Atlanta Hawks, who improved to 30-8 with a 105-87 win over the Sixers.

Thaddeus Young did everything but help the 76ers avoid a blowout loss. Motivated to play against his former teammates, the power forward put on a show Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. But Lou Williams, Kyle Korver, and Elton Brand won bragging rights, as the Hawks prevailed, 125-99. Young finished with 29 points on an array of dunks and jump shots and three three-pointers. Twenty-three of his points came in the first half. The 6-foot-8, 230-pounder also finished with eight rebounds, five steals, and a blocked shot before sitting out the fourth quarter.

Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, and other representatives of the team met Tuesday for about two hours with free agent center Dwight Howard to make their pitch for keeping him in Los Angeles. Howard became one of the NBA's most coveted free agents when free agency opened Monday. The Lakers have made no secret they want to keep him. The Houston Rockets, the Dallas Mavericks, and the Atlanta Hawks also are interested. Howard's first, and perhaps only, season in Los Angeles was a disappointment, ending in a first-round playoff sweep, and he acknowledged being unhappy at times.

IT'S AS IF Philadelphia upset some karmic balance and stuck itself in sports purgatory. And the teams keep paying, and paying, and paying. With the news that the Flyers will buy out the contract of alleged franchise goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, another redwood fell. The Flyers will eat $23 million to kiss Bryz goodbye after two unremarkable seasons marred by his alternate sulking and spewing. This, on top of the $3.3 million they paid fading scoring threat Danny Briere to leave last week.

THOUGH HE spent only four seasons here, Elton Brand has a pretty good feel of the pain suffered by the Philadelphia sports fans. Brand, now a member of the Dallas Mavericks, made his first appearance late in the first quarter Tuesday night and received a nice hand from the crowd. He played 19 minutes and scored a season-high 17 points, to go along with eight rebounds. Last summer, he was amnestied out of the last year of his 5-year, $80 million contract by the Sixers and picked up by Dallas.
