Free agent forward Elton Brand is signing a one-year deal with the Hawks, agent David Falk told HoopsHype.
"We think it's a great opportunity for him," Falk said. "I can see him playing 4-5 more years because Elton is serious about his conditioning and, besides, he plays more with his head than his body at this point. Atlanta is a good fit and Elton will be a good veteran presence there."
The Hawks will be the fifth NBA team for Brand, who averaged 7.2 ppg and 6.0 rpg with the Mavericks last season.
