Kirilenko will return to Russia in case of a lock-out in NBA

Andrei Kirilenko confirmed, once more, that he will be definitely returning to play in Russia in case a lock-out occurs in the NBA in the near future.

The Russian international, who recently acquired USA citizenship, had not ruled out the possibility of returning to Russia in the beginning of the current season, pending his health and desire of returning back home.

But with no progress achieved between the players and the clubs owners ever since and the NBA players’ collective agreement expiring on June 30th things do not look optimistic, so Kirilenko said that he will would be definitely going back to Russia in case the lock-out occurs in a statement before the game against the New York Knicks.
