Near the end of the interview he says the Nets are a possibility and he was quoted before saying his first priority is the Jazz.

Would he play for the minimum? Cuz at this stage of FA not many teams can offer him much.

He would be good for the Jazz but they are on a youth movement not sure how he fits

Doubt he takes vet minimum to come to Brooklyn.

Would be nice though.

"Kirilenko, 30, added that all of the money he earns while playing for CSKA will be donated to charity.
"The [Kirilenko’s Kids] foundation will help the children hospitals and charity-schools, sport schools, sport veterans and the basketball players who became the disabled persons," he said."

So if he stays with CSKA, he'll again donate his salary. Major respect for AK!

That might just seal AK to BRK right there.

AK is about helping his people and not about the money so you bring up a good point which maybe the main reason why AK would come to the Nets.

If the Nets get AK they're going to have great depth next year, I hope they convince him to come.

Wow I am getting VERY excited...thought we had no chance at signing AK47. Billy King seems pretty optimistic:

netsdaily.com


In an interview with FOX Sports Radio Saturday, Billy King volunteered that the Nets are talking to Andrei Kirilenko but gave no indication of whether he's likely to sign the nine-year NBA veteran and Russian star. He did say the Nets expect to sign a back-up big, then "may hold off a bit."

"We're pretty much done. We only have two spots left. We're looking for a back up big, then we may hold off a bit," King told Anthony Gargano and Lincoln Kennedy, noting that his recent knee surgery is one reason for the hold. "We got a couple guys we're talking to. Nazr Mohammed is visiting now in New Jersey with his wife. We'd like to sign him as a back-up and then ... We're talking to Kirilenko."

When Gargano asked if Kirilenko can still play, King responded, "Yeah! I saw him in the Euroleague Final Four. Yeah, he still can play. He'd be a great piece to add to us. He'd give us more depth at the forward spot." In particular, King said AK-47 could help with defense against wings like LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. "That"s why I'm looking at Kirilenko. You need players to run at those guys."

On Thursday, Kirilenko told Russian reporters that signing with the Nets is one of "several scenarios" he's considering .. even though the Nets can only offer the veterans' minimum.

Now that the Nets lost Mo to the Bulls I wouldn't be surprise for the Nets to push hard for AK47
