Let’s go with the worse news:
Sixers undrafted summer leaguer Xavier Silas suffered a serious head injury in the final game down in Orlando today.
Silas is at a local hospital with a concussion and possible frontal bone skull fracture after a collision with Solo Jones, who was going to block a shot. The team said Silas will undergo tests. We’ll update this post as more details become available.
Now, the bad news:
The Sixers have reportedly signed Kwame Brown to a two-year, $6 million deal (some reports say one-year with option for second) today. The 30-year-old center, who, in the last five years, has played for such powerhouses as the Grizzlies, Pistons, Bobcats and Warriors, averages 6.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. That’s as a 6’11, 270 lb big man.
Last season, Brown played in nine games for the Warriors, averaging 6.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per.
In 2006, Brown was investigated for rape. Charges were later dropped. In 2007, Brown threw a cake at a man, and was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and interfering with a police investigation after his cousin was pulled over for driving the opposite way on a one-way street.
No fucking clue why the Sixers would pay Kwame Brown $6, let alone $6 million, but that’s what they’re going to do. Inexplicably, thus far, they have turned Elton Brand’s amnesty into Brown and Nick Young. I’m not sure those are the investments you were looking for. But your Twitter reactions are hilarious:
