Report: Kirilenko going to Nets

Report: Nets agree to deal with Andrei Kirilenko

A person with knowledge of the deal says the Brooklyn Nets have agreed to a contract with forward Andrei Kirilenko.

The person, speaking Thursday on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced, says Kirilenko has accepted the taxpayer's mid-level exception worth about $3.2 million. The contract includes a player option for the second year.

The Russian forward opted out of his $10.2 million deal for next season with the Minnesota Timberwolves and found a home with the Nets - owned by fellow Russian and former CSKA Moscow owner Mikhail Prokhorov.

The versatile forward is another strong addition for a Nets team that has loaded up this offseason, highlighted by the pending acquisitions of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett from Boston.
