Trade details, via Yahoo! Sports:

The Brooklyn Nets have reached agreement on a deal to unload forward Andrei Kirilenko onto the Philadelphia 76ers, sparing the franchise nearly $11 million in salary and luxury tax, league sources said.

 

The 76ers will send forward Brandon Davies to the Nets and acquire a 2020 second-round pick in the deal, as well as the right to swap second-round picks with Brooklyn in the 2018 draft. The Nets will likely include guard Jorge Gutierrez in the deal, a league source said.

 

Kirilenko has had a decorated NBA and international basketball career. He was an All-Star for the Utah Jazz in 2004 and made the first-team All-Defense team in 2006. In 12 NBA seasons, he’s played with the Jazz, Minnesota Timberwolves and Nets.
