02:17 PM ET 06.29 | Andrei Kirilenko, better known by his alias AK-47, has decided to opt out of his contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, which will allow him to test the free agency market. Kirilenko is seeking a three- or four-year deal because he believes this might be the last chance to negotiate the last big contract of his career. The contract would have paid Kirilenko just over $10 million for the 2013-14 season.

thought he might have found a home in Minnesota. He was a nice fit there. Can't blame a guy for going after the big bucks though, especially if he thinks its his last chance at a big contract. Hopefully him and Minnesota can work something out.

He was already being over-paid at $10+ per. NO ONE would pay him that much for 3-4 years.

Two forwards with similar stats and age. Metta World Peace 7,258, 960 for 2013-2014. Shawn Marion 9.07 million for 2013-2014.

Dude averages around 12 points and 5 rebounds a game, and has been doing this for years, and teams pay him $10M a year! Amazing.

True.....but he has money and he ain't gonna win a championship in Minnesota.

But he'll have a better chance in Brooklyn, whose team is owned by a Russion.....
