Andrei Kirilenko played for Mikhail Prokhorov's CSKA Moscow 10 years ago. The two are friends and AK-47 admits he advised Prokhorov on the Nets' purchase. So he knows what to expect from Prokhorov. In fact, he thinks Prokhorov will have the same effect on the Nets that Mark Cuban has on the Mavs. Kirilenko hasn't spoken about whether he'd like to rejoin his friend but he does become a free agent in 2011.
