In a brief comments to a Russian sports site, Andrei Kirilenko said his chances of joining the Nets is a "98 percent."
Kirilenko told Pavel Osipov of Sport-Express that he wouldn't have further comment until after he signed.
"The probability of my being in Brooklyn is quite high. I would rate it at 98 percent," said Kirilenko. :"However, the two per cent that the deal falls through, still remain. I remember how, in about the same situation, the contract with Kyle Korver broke down. But I hope that everything will be fine. And soon I'll give you an interview as a full player of the Nets."
Pravda, the Russian newspaper said the two sides are dealing with "formalities" not further described.
