05:32 PM ET 01.23 | The Minnesota Timberwolves aren't playing great basketball of late, but forward Andrei Kirilenko is enjoying his time with the club so much that he has no intentions of leaving any time soon, the Russian forward says. Kirilenko has played well for the T-Wolves this year, averaging nearly 14 points per game while playing solid defense, but the team is just 10th in the Western Conference standings despite his contributions. Still, Kirilenko holds a $10.2 million player option for next season, and he says he fully intends to exercise it. "I'm going to stay in the NBA for sure. There is no doubt about it. I like Minnesota and I like [head coach] Rick Adelman," Kirilenko told HoopsWorld.
