Kirilenko signs with the Nets for 2 years $6.3 mil. After opting out of with 1 year $10 mil on his contract with the Wolves

Safe to say Prokorov is a game changer. Also he is probably paying him under the table

Money wise, it's bad but it's a step closer to winning a Championship. And AK47 gets to reunite with Dwill. It's a solid move for the Nets. They're going to be a fun team to watch.

The NBA might be dropping the bant hammer on Brooklyn...

 

Mike Mazzeo: Confirmed via league source following the trade, #Nets payroll is around $101 million and projected luxury-tax bill at around $83 million Twitter @MazzESPN

 

The signing of Russian free agent Andrei Kirilenko – a $10 million-a-year player last season – for Brooklyn's $3.1 mini-midlevel exception has transformed rival owners and front office executives into an angry mob of disbelievers. The insinuations are unmistakable: Around the NBA, there are calls for the commissioner's office to investigate the possibilities of side deals and Russian rubles ruling the day – for now, unfounded charges based on circumstance and appearances. Yahoo! Sports

 

Once the Russian billionaire convinced a superb Russian player to take $7 million less to be a backup to Pierce, the rest of the NBA's reaction was instant and uproarious. For the first time now, the Nets have truly arrived as a contending franchise. They're good, with a chance to be great, and the rest of the NBA wants an investigation. Yahoo! Sports

 

"Brazen," one Western Conference GM told Yahoo! Sports. "Let's see if the league has any credibility," one NBA owner told Yahoo! Sports. "It's not about stopping it. It's about punishing them if they're doing it." Another Eastern Conference GM: "There should be a probe. How obvious is it?" Yahoo! Sports
