07:03 AM ET 07.10 | For now, free-agent forward Andrei Kirilenko remains just that -- a free agent. The San Antonio Spurs' exploration of acquiring [Kirilenko] in a sign-and-trade agreement with the Minnesota Timberwolves has passed without completion, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Spurs seriously considered a multiyear offer for Kirilenko, but Minnesota general manager Flip Saunders has shown little, if any, inclination to assist him in securing a significant financial contract elsewhere, sources said. ... There were possible combinations of Spurs assets that appealed to the T'wolves, but ultimately Minnesota was unable -- or unwilling -- to take back the contracts on what could've been an $8 million to $9 million annual salary agreement for Kirilenko, league sources said.
