Brand, others to interview for Sixers’ GM vacancy

Elton Brand was selected by the Bulls with the No. 1 overall draft pick in 1999.

The Philadelphia 76ers have added four candidates to the search for a new general manager, including former NBA big man Elton Brand, according to a report from Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Along with Brand, the Sixers will interview current team basketball executives Marc Eversley, Ned Cohen and Alex Rucker, Pompey reported.

Brand was drafted by the Chicago Bulls with the No. 1 overall pick in 1999. He played for five teams in 17 years, before retiring with the Sixers in 2017. He is currently the GM of the Delaware Blue Coats, the Sixers’ affiliate in the G-League.

The latest group of names is in addition to the three reported by ESPN last week — Golden State Warriors director of player personnel Larry Harris, Utah Jazz assistant GM Justin Zanak and Houston Rockets executive vice president Gersson Rosas.

The Sixers have received permission to interview each of those three, ESPN noted.

Former Cleveland Cavaliers GM David Griffin, a front-office free agent, is said to not be under consideration for the position.
