Andrei Kirilenko lands in Brooklyn

Andrei Kirilenko lands in Brooklyn

In probably the (sneakily) best signing of the off-season so far the Brooklyn Nets have acquired Andrei Kirilenko on a two-year contract. The deal gives Kirilenko a player option for the second year and he will make $3.1 million in the year one of the deal.

The Russian native has ties to Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov, having played for CSKA Moscow (1998-2001), which was formerly owned by Prokhorov – via ESPN

In what is an uncommon move in the NBA, Kirilenko opted out of the second year of his contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, forfeiting $10 million in the process.

Signing AK47 for only $3.1 million means that the Brooklyn Nets have got an absolute bargain. In his prime, Kirilenko was a jack-of-all-trades and regularly stuffed the stat sheet. Last season the Russian small forward averaged 12.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.8 assists and practically a block per game for the Timberwolves.

If he can re-capture some of that form for Brooklyn, he will make an excellent back-up for forwards Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.
