Andrei Kirilenko To Weigh Free Agency, Remaining In Moscow

Andrei Kirilenko, an unrestricted free agent who has spent his entire career with the Utah Jazz, signed with CSKA Moscow in his native Russia during the NBA lockout, and has been one of the best players in the 2011-12 Euroleague season so far. Now that the NBA lockout has ended, the question of whether Kirilenko will leave Moscow -- he does have an opt-out clause -- or stay put has risen.

Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune reports that, per Kirilenko's agent Marc Fleisher, the forward will weigh his options before making a decision either way.

Agent Marc Fleisher on Kirilenko's future: "He and I have decided to evaluate the NBA interest versus what he has over there and then a decision will be made."

The New Jersey Nets have been a popular suggestion as Kirilenko's potential NBA landing spot, thanks to the team's gaping hole at small forward, the possibility the team loses its power forward Kris Humphries in free agency and Kirilenko's relationships with Deron Williams and Mikhail Prokhorov.
