Nets trade Kirilenko, future pick, cash for Davies

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Brooklyn Nets have traded Andrei Kirilenko, a 2020 second round pick, the right to swap 2018 second round picks and cash to their division rival Philadelphia 76ers for Brandon Davies. Woj also reports that the Nets will be sending a “minor player” over to Philly as well. Some Nets writers are expecting this to be point guard Jorge Gutierrez.

The Nets were rumored to be shopping Kirilenko for some time now, with the Sixers being an expected destination. Kirilenko hasn’t played since November 13th against the Warriors due to personal reasons. Davies is a four in his second NBA season and is averaging 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.

Sam Amick of USA Today Sports reports that this Nets trade will save Brooklyn around $12 million.
