If you look at their stats it is so close. They are both effort, energy, and defensive players and their short comings are their outside shots. They both came into NBA same year and here are career #'s
The reason I brought this up was b/c the only player I cared that we gave up in the Boston trade was Wallace. We had to do it for salaries to match and it is actually a shrewd move financially b/c his contract was horrible. He is energy hustle defense and willing passer, and that was the glue for a 49 win team last season. Kirilenko fills in all that stuff we will be missing and at a fraction of the price. I love the Kirilenko signing!
