Austin Chang wrote:A versatile and defensive-minded 6-foot-9 forward, Kirilenko last played for the Jazz during the 2010-11 season. During the 2011 NBA lockout, he became one of the few big-name NBA players to leave the league and opted to sign a three-year deal with CSKA Moscow. During his 10-year NBA career, Kirilenko averaged 12.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, and 1.4 steals a game.
In the Warriors' search for a backup forward, Kirilenko would definitely fit their need. Known as a great shot blocker and excellent defender during his years with Utah, he would be an excellent fit for the Warriors, particularly on defense as a dominant help defender and athletic forward. Depending on how quickly rookie Harrison Barnes develops, Kirilenko could also be called upon to start at small forward in a pinch, a role he had during most of his NBA career.
More importantly, Kirilenko is also viewed as someone who could fit into the team's plans financially. At 31 years of age, he is viewed as someone who is in the latter stages of his career and could be had for a very reasonable price. However, while he might only command the veteran's minimum, which for him would be about $1.2 million, the Warriors are a dark horse in acquiring his services.
