Experienced NBA center Elton Brand is reported to have agreed a new one-year deal to carry on playing with the Atlanta Hawks next season.

The Atlanta Hawks have agreed a deal to re-sign center Elton Brand, according to a report in the press.

Yahoo Sports! suggests that Brand has managed to secure a one-year deal with the side he represented last season, with the contract thought to be worth in the region of $2m (£1.2m).

During the 2013-14 campaign, the experienced center managed an average of 5.7 points and 4.9 rebounds, alongside a 53.9 shot percentage from the field.

If the two parties officially announce the deal, 2014-15 will be Brand's 16th season in the NBA.
