Spurs targeting Kirilenko?
By Joe Kaiser
San Antonio is reportedly a team to watch out for in the Andrei Kirilenko sweepstakes.
ESPN's Marc Stein reports this afternoon that the Spurs are one of the teams that could make it tough for Minnesota to bring back their key veteran, who opted out of the final year of his deal last Friday.
"I'm told (the) Spurs have AK-47 in their sights," Stein tweets.
If the Spurs are able to land Kirilenko, one has to believe that it could -- let us emphasize the word "could" -- mean the end for Manu Ginobili in San Antonio. San Antonio would be able to start Kirlenko and use Danny Green in Ginobili's role as instant offense off the bench.
