According to http://www.basknet.info/2011/12/11/nets-promised-kirilenko-if-howard-is-traded/

According to sources close to the New Jersey Nets, Mikhail Prokhorov, the owner of the New Jersey Nets, promised to Dwight Howard that the Nets will acquire Andrei Kirilenko if Orlando trades him.

Andrei Kirilenko is currently in Russia where he plays for CSKA Moscow but his agent is searching new NBA destination for his client since he became free agent. Recent rumors say that Pacers and Kings have Kirilenko on their radar.

If Howard gets traded to New Jersey Nets, according to sources, Nets will go after Russian power forward.

Dwight Howard wants to form a big 3 with Deron Williams and a washed up Andrei Kirilenko?

I know, who would be happy to hear the owner is also looking to get AK like he will be the missing piece?

It's basically the same as playing with Kobe.

Both are declining and both are good at what they do

It does sound ridiculous but AK47 is an extremely versatile and talented player. He added a consistent 3pt shot last season and has always been able to fill a box score with his rebounding, passing, steals, and shot blocking. He's an effecient scorer who can guard multiple positions.

I think this would be a good move if you get him at a good price... Kirelenko can still ball and in the past used to average close to a triple double so he's very versatile it would be a good move by the nets IFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF they get Howard.

With L.A out of the Paul talks they can offer a better deal than New Jersey so well see what comes out of all this but I hope it ends soon I want to see how stacked all the teams are gonna be already... LOL.

Glad to have the NBA back even if it is a bit scammy right now (Insert Stern joke here).

Really? The best PG with the best C in the NBA is no better than Jameer Nelson & Howard? AK is better than Rashard Lewis & Hedo at SF is a good thing like when he was in ORL & Morrow is a deadly shooter.

They would have the best PG with two of the better passing forwards in the NBA, two deep threats for kick outs and Superman. Lets not ignore how much better the defense here would be than it was in Orlando. They could obviously work on their depth afterwards.

These two moves would make the Nets a top three team in the East IMO

yeah, 25% of the time. The rest of the time he's sitting in his suit, injured.

I like the move though, theyd easily be my favorite Eastern team. They'd have no cap left, so what ould the Jazz get...a nice TPE?

Fuuuck, Nets would upgrade centre with poor defense into the defensive player of the year and then get a guy who (is old it must be said) but still very versatile and a defensive beast. That defense would be crazy good.

12-11-2011, 10:34 PM
AK47 was way better at the PF position for his first couple seasons before being force fit as a SF with the Jazz.

Once he's back in as a PF with a competent Center like Howard, his game will thrive again.

:confused: Jazz wouldn't be getting anything, he's a free agent.

After the Nets use up their cap space, they will still have a $2.5M exception to sign Kirilenko with.

AK already has a contract worth more than that in moscow. They'd have to sign and trade with us if he is to be paid what he's worth, so we should get a TPE out of this.

Dwight "Hmm...Rose and Boozer or Deron and Kirilenko? I think I'll take the latter" This is why Dwight should have went to college.

Maybe he's thinking "20+ shots per game, ~10+ easy dunks/layups with the DWill PNR" vs "15 shots per game, all probably in iso situations/off rebounds".

No big would say playing with Rose is better than playing with DWill; I'm sure if you ask Boozer, he'll say playing with DWill was better for his game... If he doesn't, he'd be lying.

Howard isn't dumb and he isn't foolish enough to think him, Morrow, Deron, and Kirilenko will get it done. And to the idiot who said playing alongside Kirilenko will be the same as playing with Kobe, you sir are a moron. :facepalm:

I know right? I feel for all fans of teams hoping to get either CP3 or D12. All the rumors amount to nothing and just causes histeria for everyone involved. I won't be surprised to whatever happens because this the NBA run by David Stern afterall and after the CP3 debacle, nobody can say for sure where either player will end up no matter how many reports keep coming out.

I just want all of this to end so we cam move on and focus on basketball with the teams we will have or the teams we already have in place.
