Andrei Kirilenko signs with the Nets for $3.1 million.

After he opted out of his final year with the T-Wolves, which would have paid him $10 million. Which means that his fellow Russian owner, Prokhorov, is giving AK47 at least $7 million under the table in Russia where the money can't be traced.

Yeah that AK47 deal smells extremely fishy.

I don't think any owners care because Kirelenko will add another $11.5 million to the Nets tax bill. The tax bill for next year was already above $70 million. That's $2-$3 million per team.

I was wrong, they do care.

quote:

Only this time, the rest of the NBA believes the Nets have gone too far, delivering the league into an unfiltered rage. 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.

Within the NBA, there had long been those promising that deals would start popping up involving Prokhorov that made no fiscal sense, theorizing that high-end players could take less within the constraints of the salary cap and still make up the difference in clandestine pacts.

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.

Or maybe they just want more money

quote:

"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."
