AK-47 Plans Remain Uncertain

cskabasket.com

There are conflicting reports about where Andrei Kirilenko will wind up after the Olympics: back at CSKA Moscow or in the NBA, with the Nets or the Warriors. The former All-Star with the Jazz will have to make up his mind soon, but there's nothing definite...yet.

According to Russian sources quoted by Eurohoop, Kirilenko has "already decided to stay with the Moscow team."

Brian Geltzeiler of HoopsCritic has tweeted a steady stream of reports that the Nets are "close" to a vets minimum deal with Kirilenko and that no other NBA team is likely to sign him.

Meanwhile, there are reports out of the Bay Area and Twin Cities that teams in those cities may be interested in AK-47. Veteran Warrior beat writer Marcus Thompson II writes that Golden State could offer twice what the Nets could, but Brooklyn appears to be "the front runners ... The former Utah Jazz star is friends with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov."

Timberwolves beat writer Jerry Zgoda notes that Minnesota, who's agreed to terms with CSKA point guard Alexei Shved, have $14 million in cap space if Kirilenko wants to play there ... but he too notes the Nets are "assumed" front runners.
