Default Re: Off-season

Itís almost a done deal and itís a big win for European basketball. Andrei Kirilenko, the marquee superstar of last seasonís Euroleague, according to sources from Moscow has already decided to stay at least one more year at CSKA.

Kirilenko can use the NBA opt out clause in his three year contract until the 12th of July, but he seems to have already made up his mind. He wants to stay at Moscow and win the Euroleague title Ė he missed it by just one point in the thrilling final against Olympiacos Ė he likes the competition spirit in the old continent, where every game is a must win situation for him, and of course he enjoyed his stay with his family in his home country.

David Locke: Andrei Kirilenko's opt out of Euroleague contract must be used by July 12th - all signs are pointing toward another year in Europe. Twitter

While I don't think the Jazz need him right now I wish he was coming back to the NBA.
