HoopsWorld and The Salt Lake Tribune are reporting that “It appears unlikely the Jazz can avoid being luxury-tax payers and bring back both Boozer and Andrei Kirilenko. Kirilenko is owed $34.3 million through 2010-11, an especially unappealing contract for teams trying to clear cap space for the summer of 2010.”It is reported that “Kirilenko is projected to be tied with Pau Gasol as the NBA’s 11th-highest paid player next season. There could be a taker for Kirilenko’s contract in Golden State, where coach Don Nelson long has been among the Russian forward’s biggest fans.
