Andrei Kirilenko, after being waived by the Philadelphia 76ers after being traded there in December, returned home to Russia to play for CSKA Moscow. However, Kirilenko feels that this is probably his last season of basketball, as Sportando relayed from Canal+:

Andrei Kirilenko plans to retire after this season. The Russian forward returned to CSKA Moscow after he was waived by the Philadelphia 76ers.
Kirilenko has not decided yet but he feels like this is the last season of his career.

"I feel great to return home. There are great chances to finish my career at home. It is probably my last season. I am still thinkin about next year but in this moment I feel like this is my last year" said Kirilenko. "Future? I still think that I will be connected to the basketball" the Russian added to Canal+.

Kirilenko only played seven games for the Nets this season before being dealt to Philly—where he never played—after an injury prone first season with Brooklyn in 2013-2014. According to the CSKA Moscow team website, Kirilenko has played in 2 games for the Russian club, averaging three points in a little less than 11 minutes per game.
