Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - The Golden State Warriors have reportedly offered free agent Elton Brand a larger deal than the one offered to him by the Los Angeles Clippers.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the Warriors have offered the power forward $100 million over five seasons. Brand, who opted out of the final year of his contract to become a free agent, missed most of the 2007-08 season with a ruptured left Achilles tendon.
The offer comes on the heels of Baron Davis' reported verbal agreement to sign with the Clippers, thereby giving the Warriors more cap space than their cross-state rival.
No deal can be announced until July 9.
