The Philadelphia 76ers waived former All-Star swingman Andrei Kirilenko after they were unable to make use of his expiring contract in a trade before Thursday’s leaguewide trade deadline.

League sources said Saturday night that Kirilenko — if he and his $3.3 million contract clear waivers as expected — is eyeing a potential return to European basketball as opposed to resuming his NBA career. There are a handful of teams stateside still interested in pursuing him, sources say, but Kirilenko has not yet made it clear whether he’s prepared to consider fresh NBA offers.
