The 76ers agreed Friday to a $6 million, two-year contract with former No. 1 overall draft pick Kwame Brown.
Agent Mark Bartelstein announced the move Friday.
Brown will be reunited with Sixers coach Doug Collins. Collins was Brown's first coach in Washington in 2001. Brown has averaged 6.8 points and 5.6 rebounds over an 11-year career.
The well-traveled Brown was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2001 draft by the Washington Wizards.
Bartelstein said one reason Brown was eager to join the Sixers was because Collins was like a “father figure” to the center as he went right from high school to the NBA.
"Kwame and Doug have a relationship that I think really has grown over the years," Bartelstein said. "It's a great fit."
