Top Oracle moments since 2000: 1-Baron Davis dunk over Kirilenko in '07; 2-Klay T last night; 3-Curry's Game 4 v Denver in 2013 playoffs...
That last quote was from Brett Brown on the Kirilenko situation.
"We knew it was going to be hard to get [Kirilenko] here. But never once, as it was explained to me, was it [that] we were going to cut him"
The Sixers won another game. And Andrei Kirilenko shakes an angry fist at the sky
Andrei Kirilenko is inactive for the 76ers tonight.
Brown said there was never a deal to release Kirilenko and that he was looking forward to coaching him.
This Kirilenko vs Hinkie thing is really just two sides using leverage and trying to change the status quo.
Of note: Andrei Kirilenko's wife reportedly allowed him to cheat once during each NBA season back in the 2000's.
If Sam Hinkie really did have a handshake deal to waive Kirilenko after the trade and went back on that, he was absolutely wrong to do so.
Why do the Sixers want Kirilenko to report/why would Kirilenko ever report to them?
The NBA was made aware of the Kirilenko suspension earlier this week, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
The timing of the leak that Kirilenko was expecting to be waived makes more sense now.
Philadelphia has suspended Andrei Kirilenko for failing to report to the team, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. Suspension is without pay.
I have not been able to confirm that the Sixers have suspended Kirilenko, but it makes sense.

In fairness to Boozer, the Lakers were the ones who agreed to a $500,000 bonus if he reaches 400 push fouls this season. AK
