Kirilenko has been waived by the Sixers.This move is unsurprising as Kirilenko was placed on Philadelphia's suspended list on Jan. 9. He began the season in Brooklyn before getting traded to Philadelphia in December and has not even attempted to join his new team since the trade. The veteran is not expected to sign with another NBA team this season and should definitely be left untouched on the waiver wire as a result.

Kirilenko (personal) has been placed on the Sixers' suspended list, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The exact terms of this listing are still unclear, although the move likely stems from Kirilenko's unwillingness to report to Philadelphia amid personal reasons. In terms of fantasy, nothing really changes for the veteran since he'll continue to stay off the court until future notice. Although it appears that the Sixers are still hoping to get Kirilenko on the court to increase his trade value at some point in the future, as opposed to simply waiving him.

The 76ers would like Kirilenko to report to the team and eventually play in games, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Kirklenko was dealt to Philadelphia earlier in the month but has not reported to the team amidst personal issues that have kept him out off the floor for most of the season. The forward's representatives are pushing the Sixers to waive him, enabling him to become a free agent, but the organization is reluctant to do so. Philadelphia's incentive, of course, is to hold onto Kirilenko and get him on the floor to potentially increase his value around the league. Then, the Sixers could subsequently look to deal him for a modest return around the deadline, rather than simply releasing him and getting nothing back.

Kirilenko, who is expected to be traded to the 76ers and subsequently waived, is not expected to remain in the NBA in the short-term, Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today reports.

A deal should be finalized Thursday sending Kirilenko to the 76ers, who will waive him immediately. The veteran has played sparingly in just seven games this season after appearing in 45 last season, his first with the Nets. Kirilenko has been away from the team of late dealing with a family matter, so the 33-year-old is expected to take some time away from the game, though he could sign on with a team later in the season.

Kirilenko will be waived, and effectively become a free agent, after he is dealt to the Sixers, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Kirilenko's trade to the Sixers is expected to be finalized Thursday, but with Philly having no need for a washed up veteran, they will allow him to hit the open market. Any fantasy value for the 33-year-old will likely be dependent on his ultimate landing spot.

The Nets are expected to finalize a deal Thursday to send Kirilenko to the Sixers, ESPN's Mike Mazzeo reports.

The deal was originally reported by Yahoo! Sports. Kirilenko wasn't expected to travel with the team any time soon while dealing with a family matter, but the Nets' patience appears to finally be wearing thin. When he does make his return to the court, he'll likely see a more prominent role on the lowly Sixers. The deal will save the Nets roughly $12 million in salary and luxury tax, and will likely also send a draft pick to Philadelphia.

Kirilenko (personal) is unlikely to travel with the Nets for the foreseeable future, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.

Kirilenko has been away from the team of late but returned to practice Monday. However, it's very unlikely he works his way back into the rotation, especially given the complicated situation surrounding his personal issue, which will apparently prevent him from joining the team on the road. At this point, the Nets will likely look to move Kirilenko, though it remains to be seen whether the veteran's off-the-court situation will permit that.
