Former Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko is drawing serious interest from New Jersey, according to multiple media reports.
Kirilenko, an unrestricted free agent, is weighing offers from several teams and has been in negotiations with the Jazz.
Kirilenko has often said Utah is his first choice but the Nets and Sacramento appear to have the lead in signing him. Kirilenko's asking price and the number of years he's looking for in contract length are expected to prevent him from re-signing with the Jazz. SI.com reported Kirilenko is seeking about $9 million per year for three seasons.
