Kirilenko: Expect Russian Players on Nets

In an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune, Andrei Kirilenko laments the lack of Russian players in the NBA...he's the only one. That should change, he says, when Mikhail Prokhorov takes over the Nets: "Scouts probably will look a little differently, kind of to please owner, to have somebody Russian." He again recommends Timofey Mozgov, a 23-year-old seven footer he calls a taller version of Anderson Varejao.
