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.
