Trade with Nets lands Kirilenko
As had been expected, Nets get forward Brandon Davies for Andrei Kirilenko.
THE 76ERS and Brooklyn Nets completed a much-talked-about trade yesterday, as the Sixers acquired 13-year veteran Andrei Kirilenko, guard Jorge Gutierrez and a 2020 second-round draft pick for forward Brandon Davies. Additionally, the Sixers also got the right to swap second-round draft picks with the Nets in 2018.
In his career, which included 10 years with the Utah Jazz, Kirilenko has averaged 11.8 points, and 5.5 rebounds. Gutierrez, who will be 26 in a couple of weeks, has played 25 games for the Nets over the past two seasons, averaging 3.1 points a game.
