Andrei Kirilenko looking to return to NBA
Andrei Kirilenko told Russian media yesterday heís going to come to the NBA this season, and that his decision will be made sometime soon. Kirilenko, who is preparing to play for Russia in the Olympics, has long been linked to the Nets because of his ties to Williams, whom he played with for several years in Utah, and Russian billionaire owner Mikhail Prokhorov, whom Kirilenko supported in his failed presidential bid earlier this year.
But after spending over $300 million this summer to completely revamp their roster, the Nets can only offer Kirilenko the veteranís minimum, something that sources have said would make the Nets a long shot to land him.
