It was just yesterday when we talked about the Spurs attempts to sign-and-trade for AK-47, with the Minnesota Timberwolves, had fallen through without a deal. Kirilenko opted out of his contract with the Timberwolves, that would’ve paid him $10 million this season, for a more long-term deal. And though Kirilenko was adamant about signing with a contender, it’s safe to say no one predicted Kirilenko would sign for only $3.1 million.
Mikhail Prokhorov have it all.
UPDATE: From Stefan Bondy, the deal is for two years, with the second year being a player option. Sigh.
