Kirilenko’s Decision May Tie to Adelman
It’s his (Andrei Kirilenko) choice this summer whether to accept a $10 million salary from the Wolves next season or become a free agent able to negotiate perhaps a three- or four-year contract — probably the last big one of his career — with another team, including the Wolves.
He said his family’s wishes will weigh heavily, and his children like Minnesota.
So, too, of course, will (coach Rick) Adelman’s decision for a franchise that will have to start all over again if he chooses to retire.
“This is the key moment for me,” Kirilenko said. “He is the reason I’m here in the first place. We’ll see. Let’s wait for the summertime.”
