Nets News: Brooklyn Talking Andrei Kirilenko Trade With The Philadelphia 76ers

According to several sources, Andrei Kirilenko is likely to have played in his last game as a member of the Brooklyn Nets.

Kirilenko has fallen out of head coach Lionel Hollins' rotation, and is missing the team's current two-game road trip due to what is being termed as personal reasons.

Those personal reasons, or a combination of other factors, could lead to Kirilenko being shipped to Philly before ultimately having to search out another job.

Here's Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN New York with the scoop:

"according to sources, Nets have had preliminary talks w/ Sixers about moving Kirilenko + Karasev. In such case Sixers likely waive Kirilenko"

The Nets acquired Sergey Karasev in the Jarrett Jack/Marcus Thornton swap, but he hasn't seen court time since November 7th against the New York Knicks.

For Brooklyn to offload Kirilenko's contract, they will likely have to send Philadelphia a draft pick in return. However, at this juncture, they might be willing to make that deal in order to remove Kirilenko from the books.

Per Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, a "source says situation between Kirilenko and Nets probably won’t be resolved until he’s on another team."
