Ex-Jazz's Andrei Kirilenko '50-50' about NBA return; focused on 2012 Summer Olympics

Ex-Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko is "50-50" about returning to the NBA for the 2012-13 season, a league source with direct knowledge of the situation told The Salt Lake Tribune on Thursday.

Several NBA teams have expressed interest in Kirilenko since free agency started last Saturday. He is primarily focused upon helping Russia qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, though, and a decision about his return to the NBA isn't believed to be imminent.

Kirilenko hasn't played in the league since 2010-11, which marked his final year for Utah. He was one of the only big-name NBA players to leave the league during the 2011 lockout, choosing to sign a three-year deal with CSKA Moscow. Kirilenko was one of the top players in international basketball last season.
