SIXERS BEAT TIMBERWOLVES 109-99 IN THEIR MOST IMPRESSIVE WIN OF THE SEASON
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! The Sixers signed long-time veteran Elton Brand to a one-year deal. Brand won't bring a lot to the table, but he'll certainly bring experience and leadership to a young Sixers core. Brand played with the team from 2008-2012 and averaged 13 points and seven rebounds a game. He'll make his Sixer return on Thursday. Christian Wood was waived. (RELEASE)
TON OF HEAD COACH NEWS FROM THE NFL; EAGLES GET WORKING ON INTERVIEWS
There's also a rumor that Mike Shanahan has reached out to the Eagles. He had a second interview with the Miami Dolphins yesterday. There's also a report that Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo and Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin are also candidates, and will interview Austin along with Jaguars assistant Doug Marrone. So will Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.
Meanwhile, the Giants are in need of a new coach after Tom Coughlin stepped down. And Chip Kelly is being looked at by the team. He's also being looked at by the 49ers. Also, the Colts are keeping Chuck Pagano.
And, the Eagles signed seven practice squad guys.

There's also a report that Manziel wants to play for the Dallas Cowboys, and Jerry Jones has made attempts in the past to get the QB. Wouldn't be a surprise if he eventually goes to Dallas because Jerry Jones likes those type of guys ie Greg Hardy.
