The house came on the market in the middle of August for $5.85 million and was under contract in less than a week, records show.
Sally Forster Jones of John Aaroe Group was the listing agent. Alla Furman of Hilton & Hyland represented the buyer.
Kirilenko, 34, spent 13 seasons in the NBA for the Utah Jazz, Minnesota Timberwolves and Brooklyn Nets, making one All-Star team (2014) andone All-Defensive first team (2006).
After finishing the year with Russian club CSKA Moscow, the forward retired in June and in August was elected president of the Russian Basketball Federation, which was suspended by international basketball governing body FIBA earlier this year.
Kirilenko and wife Masha Lopatova previously owned a Traditional-style home overlooking Stone Canyon Reservoir in Bel-Air. Set on more than half an acre, the 2,285-square-foot house sold off-market in March for $3.4 million.
