Andrei Kirilenko had until Sunday to inform CSKA Moscow whether he would stay with the Russian League champs or return to the NBA. He's chosen the NBA, his coach reports. Although Kirilenko had told a Russian sports site that his "top priorities" are the Jazz and Nets, there's been little talk lately about the Nets' interest in him. He hosted Deron Williams in Moscow last month and he is friendly with Mikhail Prokhorov..
Kirilenko will be joined by two other members of CSKA, former Net Nenad Krstic, who will also be returning to the NBA, and Alexei Shved, a 6'6" point guard known as the "Russian Rubio." Both had been linked to the Nets as well.
