Interesting option. Kirlenko is a versatile 6'9" who can play the SF/PF positions, can rebound pretty good for his stick frame and this is what Pop likes, can play defense. But the difference in his weight vs those who he guards at that height gives me pause. Pop seems to favor the older vets on their last legs as they mesh pretty good to his coaching. If he'll take a large salary cut from his $10 mil last year, again, interesting option.
