Kwame Brown, known to most as the No. 1 overall pick taken by Michael Jordan’s Washington Wizards in 2001, has signed with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to SI.com’s Sam Amick.

The deal is for $6 million over two years, with a player option for the second year.

The 76ers will be Brown’s seventh NBA team in his decade-long career. After a handful of futile years in the middle of his career, Brown averaged 7.9 points and 6.8 rebounds per game for the Charlotte Bobcats in the 2010-11 season.

The 76ers used their amnesty clause on Elton Brand, cutting the former All-Star and leaving them thin in the paint.
