Andrei Kirilenko will not play for the Russian national team this summer as he's indicated that he wants to spend more time with his family. He also might be considering entering free agency again, according to Jerry Zgoda of The Star Tribune.
The 6'9 Russian forward signed a two-year, $20 million deal with Minnesota last summer, but has a $10 million player option for next season that he may not pick up.
Kirilenko told Zgoda that he will wait until the end of the year to "analyze the season" and see what he wants to do next. He said he's enjoyed everything about the Wolves organization "except the results," as the team has been riddled with injuries and is 20-32 overall and in last place in the Northwest Division.
Kirilenko is averaging 13.4 point, 6.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks while shooting 51.1 percent from the floor this season.
Kirilenko returned to the NBA this season after sitting out the 2011-12 campaign. He played his previous 10 seasons with the Utah Jazz and is averaging 12.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.4 steals in his career.
