    Report: 76ers' trade discussions 'picking up'

    The 76ers aren't likely to make as many deadline deals as they did in 2014, but trade discussions with other teams have been "picking up," The Intelligencer reports. The most likely trade scenario has the 76ers absorbing salary in order to acquire second-round picks, but they could also deal small forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute or the expiring contracts of Jason Richardson or Andrei Kirilenko. The team reportedly likes guard Nik Stauskas, who the Kings have shown a willingness to deal before the deadline. It's possible general manager Sam Hinkie could consider a deal swapping Nerlens Noel for Stauskas and a pick, per the report, as the No. 8 pick in 2014 would provide perimeter shooting and has one more year on his deal than Noel. Michael Carter-Williams is another player who could be on the move if an interested team is willing to meet the 76ers' asking price, according to the report.

    The Philadelphia 76ers have indefinitely suspended Andrei Kirilenko without pay for his unwillingness to report to the team after being traded from Brooklyn, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports on Friday. The league was made aware of the suspension earlier this week, per the report. The Sixers won't have to pay for his contract for the time being and can still use his deal as a trade chip before the deadline. Kirilenko has not played a game since Nov. 13 while dealing with personal reasons, and was not considering playing in the NBA until later in the season. A source told Bob Ford of the Philadelphia Inquirer Thursday that 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie and Nets general manager Billy King had a 'handshake deal' to release Kirilenko, but Hinkie reneged on his word to part ways with the veteran from Russia.

However, two sources told the paper that Hinkie reneged on his word to part ways with Kirilenko. The Nets told the Sixers that Kirilenko wouldn't report to the team and wished to be released prior to making a deal. Philadelphia agreed to waive physicals as a condition of the trade when it was made in December. "That's 100 percent accurate," one source said. "[The Nets] clearly believed there was a handshake deal." Kirilenko has not played a game since Nov. 13.

    Report: 76ers want Andrei Kirilenko to report to team

    Despite Andrei Kirilenko's unwillingness to play for the 76ers, the team is still requesting Kirilenko report to the team and be ready to play, reports Yahoo Sports. The 76ers acquired Kirilenko in a trade with the Nets earlier this month, but Kirilenko has not played since Nov. 13 while dealing with personal issues. The 76ers have repeatedly requested Kirilenko report to the team, but Kirilenko's representatives prefer the 76ers released the veteran forward so he can become a free agent. The 76ers would prefer Kirilenko work his way into playing shape so the team can trade him for an asset.
