League sources said Saturday night that Kirilenko — if he and his $3.3 million contract clear waivers as expected — is eyeing a potential return to European basketball as opposed to resuming his NBA career. There are a handful of teams stateside still interested in pursuing him, sources say, but Kirilenko has not yet made it clear whether he’s prepared to consider fresh NBA offers.

To Kurt Rambis, the interim coach of the New York Knicks, what the Knicks need to do hasn’t changed, even with the team 4.5 games out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. “I’ve already let [the players] know that we’ve got to find a way to get in the playoffs,” a low-key Rambis said. “It’s so valuable, for both the growth of the team and the growth of the individual players, to be in that kind of intense environment. And they’ve got to experience that. The quicker we can get them in the playoffs, the longer we can keep them there, the better off we’re going to be as an organization, and they’re going to be as players.”
The BioSteel Centre, located on the Exhibition Place grounds, will be the team’s new training and development centre as well as home to the team’s front office. “Our vision for the Raptors is to build a championship contender that represents our city, our entire country and our fans with great pride and is ‘world-class’ in every way and Masai is certainly helping the team make great strides towards that goal,” said MLSE Chairman of the Board, Larry Tanenbaum. “The opening of BioSteel Centre is an important part of that vision. It is a development home for the team and will give them the tools they need to continue building on its progress of the past two years. We are very thankful to BioSteel, and all of the Raptors partners, as well as our fans, for their tremendous support.”
