Andrei Kirilenko Suspended From Team, Sixers May Have Gone Back On Agreement To Waive Him

The Sixers are playing hardball and do not look good doing so. Bob Ford, who wrote a crackpot article on a "search" for Andrei Kirilenko not long after the Sixers acquired the veteran forward, now has a scoop on him. He reports the Sixers reneged on an agreement to waive him: ...there are lingering hard feelings about how it played out and unsettling questions from some league sources about the way Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie handled the deal. According to two sources with inside knowledge of the negotiations, the Sixers had agreed to release veteran forward Andrei Kirilenko after...

Top 10 Sixers Trades For Second Round Picks in 2014

You have to laugh, because what else do you have? The Sixers made a lot of trades during 2014, and the year proved that Sam Hinkie values second round picks greatly. So much so that I had enough to create a top 10 list of trades including the Sixers receiving a second round pick. These rankings are super-subjective, so arguing about the order is pointless. That said, go ahead and do it. Enjoy! 10. Brandon Davies Acquired 2020 second round pick (and Jorge Gutierrez and Andrei Kirilenko) and 2018 second round pick swap for Brandon Davies. What a sad, sad day. We lost a good man, a good...
