Kwame Brown signs 2-year deal with 76ers

Kwame Brown and Doug Collins, together again.Brown, the former Wizards overall No. 1 draft pick in 2001 signed a two-year, 6 million with Philadelphia, according to reports. Of course the 76ers are coached by Collins, who had the same role in Washington when Brown entered the league. That didn't work out so well the first time, though the now 30-year forward has stuck around the league for a decade grabbing boards and doing other big man things. Philadelphia could use another interior option after using the amnesty waiver on Elton Brand.This signing comes on the heels of the 76ers signing Nick Young, another former Wizards first-round pick.
