Nets Confirm Talks With Kirilenko
Billy King said the Nets have been talking with Andrei Kirilenko, who played last season for CSKA Moscow.
“He still can play,” King said of Kirilenko during a recent radio interview. “He would be a great piece to add to us, and give us more depth at the forward spot.”
The Nets only can offer Kirilenko the veteran’s minimum, while Kirilenko’s three-year pact with CSKA pays him $4 million per year.
Kirilenko’s existing deal includes an opt-out clause at the end of each season.
