Or just suck it up for another (short) year and draft Harrison Barnes.

Kirilenko is ok. But that's not a guy you should jeopardise rebuilding for...
He's slowing down and even breaking down a little.
I mean the NBA, but this isn't even a great Eurobasket by his standards either.
He's been way better before.
Been there, done that, returned to an NBA pedestrian over and over again.

Btw, is Russia getting wildly overrated or what?
The easiest schedule in Eurobasket so far - by FAR.
The only game against a decent team (Slovenia) was basically a draw - btw, Kirilenko sucked there.
And anytime I watch them (bar the early prep game against Lithuania) they look good but far from elite.
Maybe it's just my luck with catching them at a bad time, idk.
But guys have been calling them a serious contender for gold which to me is crazy.
