    I read somewhere recently - I think it was on Yahoo sports that he had an offer from the Nets (Russian connection with Prokhorov), but decided to stay in Russia for the duration of the season.
    lol - well there you go!

    I read somewhere, probably on HoopsHype.com but I can't remember the exact source, that the Nets did not reach out to him this summer. It is all based on rumour and hearsay so who knows.

    New Jersey was very interested too and would probably throw a lot of money his way.

    AK47 on the radar for this summer (post #16)

    Really this is a non-story but here you go:
    The timing of Andrei Kirilenko's announcement Saturday that he intends to play the entire season with CSKA Moscow was curious, considering the Russian forward still had another week to opt out for a return to the NBA without his new team being on the hook for the standard $500,000 buyout. Sources say the Raptors, who could use Kirilenko's production and versatility at the small forward position, were among the teams that registered inquiries with Kirilenko's representatives. But the Raptors took a pass and opted to preserve 2012 cap flexibility as new coach Dwane Casey tries to establish a new defensive culture in a transition year for the franchise.

    Maybe they revisit the idea down the road once AK's contract expires in Europe and the Raptors are at the right place to need him.
