Andrei Kirilenko: Europe Is My Last Choice

Whatever happens then, Kirilenko says he’s started to prioritize his wish list for the summer of 2011.

And No. 1 on it is not, as some suspect, catching the first flight back to Moscow.

"Getting back to Europe is definitely my last choice," he said after a shooting session with Hornacek prior to practice Friday. "Because the level of the basketball is really different than here, and you want to play at the best level as possible as long as you can."

And he definitely wants to continue playing beyond age 30, which seemingly leaves either joining another NBA team or staying in Utah.
