Free agent center Kwame Brown signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Philadelphia 76ers first reported by Yahoo Sports. Brown made $6.75 million as a member of the Warriors last season. He played in just nine games before he tore his pectoralis major -- the largest muscle in the chest which attaches to the shoulder -- and had surgery in January. In 11 pro seasons, Brown averaged 6.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. Golden State was his sixth NBA team since 2005 when he was drafted No. 1 by the Washington Wizards out of Glynn Academy in South Carolina. Brown was the first high school player to be drafted first in the NBA draft.
