NBA Trade Rumors: Timberwolves Targeting Andrei Kirilenko, According To Reports

The Minnesota Timberwolves are making things quite interesting in the post-summer league NBA offseason. Building on earlier reports that Minnesota plans to trade former first-round pick Wesley Johnson the Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda confirms what the T'Wolves might be up to following the trade.

Reports earlier in the day had Andrei Kirilenko in the cross-hairs of the Brooklyn Nets and Russian owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Kirilenko was quoted in the article mentioning he had options and it appears Minnesota may be a favorable one for the Russian forward. Kirilenko played ten seasons with the Utah Jazz before playing last year for CSKA Moscow and has made it known he plans to return to the NBA this season.
