Andrei Kirilenko has not had the biggest NBA free agency market, which is in a way unexpected because of his track record as a prove scorer.
At some point Kirilenko’s market was going to heat up, and it appears to be right now. According to ProBasketballDraft on Twitter, the San Antonio Spurs, Sacramento Kings, Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers all have a serious interest in him:
Andrei Kirilenko drawing interest from the Kings, Spurs, Nets, and Cavs. AK47 free agency has been surprisingly quiet.

The report does have a few holes in it. The Spurs have attempted to acquire him in the past but the Minnesota Timberwolves were having none of it. Both the Nets and the Cavs do not appear to have the required cap space to bring him on board.
One location that does make sense is with the Kings, especially after losing Tyreke Evans. The team has the money and the need, so this is one realistic option to keep an eye on moving forward.
The market is just starting to heat up with some of the bigger names having found new homes, so watch Kirilenko’s status closely.
