Let’s just say that things didn’t exactly work out between Brooklyn Nets forward Andrei Kirilenko and head coach Jason Kidd last season. Thankfully for Kirilenko, Kidd is now in Milwaukee, and he has a new bench boss to deal with.
AK-47 (who averaged about 19 minutes in 45 regular season games with the Nets in 2013-’14) says that his playing time should be more consistent under new coach Lionel Hollins. Per the NY Daily News:
Of note today: Andrei Kirilenko said he doesn't care if he starts, but expects his minutes to be more consistent under Hollins.
