Andrei Kirilenko May Opt-Out of $10 Million?
I spoke with Andrei Kirilenko from the south of France just a few minutes ago and he said he probably won’t decide whether to pick up his $10 million-plus option for next year until after next week’s draft. Kirilenko has until June 29 to make up his mind, a curious date because it’s two days after the June 27 draft.
“I think it will come right after the draft,’” he said of his decision when reached today just after dinnertime in France.
Kirilenko said he hasn’t spoken with his agent at length about the matter yet, but plans to do so in the next three to four days.
