Philadelphia 76ers general manager Elton Brand believes the team’s acquisitions ahead of the trade deadline—most notably landing Tobias Harris—put the team firmly in the NBA Finals discussion.

We believe we are in position to contend now,” Brand said Friday, per ESPN.com’s Tim Bontemps. “And our moves reflect that belief.”

Brand also joked the last few days haven’t been without its problems, per Bontemps: “It’s a lot of stress. I would tell parents don’t let your kids grow up to be general managers.”
