NEW YORK (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets say forward Andrei Kirilenko has opted to remain with the team for the second year of his contract.

Kirilenko will make $3.3 million next season in the final year of a two-year, $6.5 million deal he signed last summer.

The versatile forward from Russia was limited to 45 games by injuries last season, missing 26 early in the season because of back spasms, and averaged 5.0 points.
