Brand plays in the post and protects the rim. Much better fit than a PF-C whose M.O. is to shoot at the top of the key. I'm sure he will be serviceable, but I think Brand would've offered more help in the areas I'd prefer.

He sucks at it now. Defense and offense.

His defensive rating is better than Speights.

Looking at this harder, they are basically pretty equal in defense. Speights being much better in offense would be the tie breaker. And he doesn't have the risk of getting much worse due to age.
