For days speculation over the destination of Andrei Kirilenko had San Antonio Spurs fans buzzing about the endless possibilities he could bring. A team that was literally seconds away from a championship could bolster their squad by adding the NBA's version of a Swiss-army knife. Kirilenko can guard multiple positions and has the ability to fill in any gaps your team may have. His off the ball game would have fit perfectly for this current Spurs team. Defensively he has the ability to guard multiple positions and make life hard for opposing teams by playing the passing lanes.
