In an interview following a Team Russia practice session, Andrei Kirilenko said he's unlikely to make a decision on whether to rejoin the NBA until "about July 10", the day before teams can sign free agents. Kirilenko, who hosted Deron Williams on his Moscow vacation last month, has said the Nets and the Jazz are his "top priorities" if he leaves CSKA Moscow.

"Wait, I have not yet gone to the NBA," he told reporters. "At this time, I have a valid contract with CSKA Moscow, and it's unlikely I will to be able to tell you anything new until about July 10 on whether I'll go to the NBA or not." Players can announce their intentions as early at July 1, but can't actually sign a contract until July 11.
