Philadelphia 76ers punished Andrei Kirilenko for not reporting to the team after his trade. Meanwhile, Miroslav Raduljica comes back in the NBA after his agreement with Minesota Timberwolves.

The 76ers suspended the Russian superstar because he didn’t join the team after his trade at 11th of December. He explained that he faces family matters and can’t move out of New York area, where his wife is. That means that he will not receive the rest of his 3,3 mil. dollars salary but of course Kirilenko doesn’t seem to have this in mind. It remains to be seen what’s going on in this case. After all earlier in the season there were some rumors for him and CSKA.

Also, Miroslav Raduljica signed a 10-day contract with the Wolves and after his experience in China he comes back in the NBA; even if it’s a short-term deal. The Serbian center spent last season with Milwaukee Bucks.
