NBA Free Agency 2012: Kwame Brown Signs With Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers have agreed to terms with free agent big man Kwame Brown, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Brown averaged 6.3 points and 6.3 rebounds last year with the Golden St. Warriors, but underwent chest surgery that ended his season after just nine games. He was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks later in the season, but didn't appear in a single game with the Bucks because of the injury.

The acquisition of Brown could be part of a plan to move Spencer Hawes to the power forward position next season, as Doug Collins mentioned Friday. But that plan has serious issues, writes Michael Levin of Liberty Ballers.

Derek tweeted that Hawes has "defended the 4 for exactly 0 minutes last year." The only time he did in his career was for one lineup in 2008-09 with Sacramento. Defensively, this would be atrocious. Nothing less. They'll sign somebody like Brendan Haywood, who is pretty worthless, and won't trade Andre Iguodala. A lineup of Jrue/Wright/Iguodala/Hawes/Haywood is disgusting, finishes 9th or 10th in the East and doesn't develop the young guys how they should.

Just imagine someone even more lumbering than Hawes on the court with him. This is terrible even if we pretend like we want them to win games this year. I don't understand anything anymore. They ping-pong back and forth between logic and insanity with such regularity that I'm consistently pulling myself both ways on the team.
