What the hell, Andrei Kirilenko? After opting out of his contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, which would have paid him $10 million during the 2013-2014 season, AK47 has decided to sign with the Brooklyn Nets—for just $3.1 million.

The 32-year-old forward is by no means the player he was back in 2004 when he earned himself an all-star selection, but he still put together a very good season in 2012—12 points, six rebounds, three assists, and 1.5 steals per game is nothing to shrug at—and now he's making less money than Corey Brewer. I think we have to assume that Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has Kirilenko's family locked away in a remote Siberian prison.
