Source: Mavs to Aggressively Bid for Brand

The Dallas Mavericks will make a “very aggressive bid” for Elton Brand in the amnesty waiver process, a source close to the situation told ESPNDallas.com’s Jeff Caplan on Wednesday.
The Philadelphia 76ers have used their amnesty clause on the 6-foot-8 Brand, making him eligible for teams under the salary cap to put in bids. Whichever team places the winning bid will earn Brand’s services and will pay that amount off the $18.2 million he’s owed next season, the final year of his contract.
By virtue of using the amnesty clause on Brendan Haywood and agreeing to a one-year deal with fellow center Chris Kaman, the Mavs have a substantial amount of cap space to make a strong bid for Brand.
