Elton Brand prime candidate for the Knicks’ General Manager job

Elton Brand is considered a prime candidate to become the new General Manager of the New York Knicks, per Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News.

Brand is the GM of the Philadelphia 76ers and is under contract for the next season.

The current GM of the Knicks is Scott Perry, but he is expected to leave, since both he and the team have contract opt-outs after this season ends.

“According to a league source, Elton Brand has been targeted by Rose as a candidate for Knicks GM. Brand, 41, is currently the Sixers GM and is under contract next season, complicating any designs of bringing him to New York. The source said Rose wanted to see if Brand was dismissed after the playoffs,” Bondy reports.
