Sixers Acquire Andrei Kirilenko and 2nd Round Pick in 2020
According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Sixers have traded Brandon Davies to the Brooklyn Nets for Andrei Kirilenko, the Nets 2020 2nd round draft pick, the right to swap 2nd round draft picks, and cash.
Wojnarowski also reported that the deal might involve the Nets sending a minor player back to the Sixers. He then clarified that player to be Jorge Gutierrez, which was earlier reported by NetsDaily.com.
According to reports, the Sixers will waive Andrei Kirilenko, allowing the 33 year old Russian forward to become a free agent, although John Gonzalez of CSN Philly is reporting that the Sixers are trying to convince Kirilenko to stick around. Kirilenko has played in limited minutes so far this season, playing only 5.1 minutes per game in his 9 appearances. He is currently away from the team on personal reasons.
Gutierrez is a 25 (turning 26 on December 27th) year old player out of Mexico, who went to school at the University of California, Berkeley. This is his second season with the Nets, although he's played only 244 minutes so far in his NBA career, including only 4.3 minutes per game in 9 games this season. His contract, the minimum salary for a 2nd year player, is not guaranteed.
