Andrei Kirilenko was one of the most complete, all-around players in the NBA just a couple of years ago. Unless Dirk Nowitzki beats him to it, Kirilenko could become the 15th player in league history to notch 10,000 points, 4,000 boards, 2,000 assists, 1,000 steals and 1,000 blocks.
Kirilenko fills the stat sheet, but he doesn't do it cheaply. What he does always has an impact on the game, and because of that he tends to have a positive impact on the players around him.
Having him work alongside Gerald Wallace would make for a formidable two-man challenge which could overcome the shortcomings of the Brooklyn Nets' own Brook Lopez.
If the Nets land Kirilenko (as they're rumored to be in pursuit), it would be a great signing as there's a good chance he'd take less to play under a Russian owner and alongside former Utah Jazz starter Deron Williams.
Given their salary cap restrictions, the Nets would have to pay him more than he's worth, but he could just go there. If he does, he'll be one of the best signings, in terms of production per dollar, in the NBA.
