Description: The Brooklyn Nets have traded forward Andrei Kirilenko to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Insight: The deal is not official quite yet, but Philadelphia will also receive a 2020 second round draft pick, the right to swap 2018 second rounders, and cash in exchange for Brandon Davies. Kirilenko will likely be waived, paving the way for him to sign with a contender.

Description: Nets forward Andrei Kirilenko is worth owning in standard fantasy leagues if he can stay healthy this season.
Insight: As with many injury-prone players, that is a big IF. Kirilenko is battling with Bogdan Bogdanovic and Alan Anderson for a starting role. At this point, Bogdanovic seems to have the edge.

Insight: He had been questionable with a sprained ankle. Kirilenko (5.6 ppg, 3.5 rpg) has only scored in double-digits once since the All-Star break. Fantasy owners should be looking elsewhere.
