Despite overtures from the Brooklyn Nets as well as CSKA Moscow, reigning Euroleague MVP and former NBA All-Star Andrei Kirilenko has agreed to terms on a contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to the T'Wolves' public-relations staff.

Kirilenko played 10 years in the NBA, all with the Utah Jazz, prior to going to Europe last season. He will join the likes of Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio and fellow offseason acquisition Brandon Roy as Minnesota attempts to get back to the playoffs.

The contract will be a two-year deal worth a total of $20 million, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
