International Moves: Krstic, Kirilenko, Wafer

Behind 25 points from Ike Diogu, Nigeria defeated the Domincan Republic on Sunday for the final spot in the Olympics.  The international game will garner plenty of attention over the next month or so, and tonight there's news about a few former, and perhaps future, NBA players as they make their decisions concerning pro teams overseas. Here's the latest: 

  • Nenad Krstic is deciding between a return to the NBA and staying with CSKA Moscow, the 7'0" center tells (Serbian link, via Sportando). Krstic indicates his contract with the Russian club allows him to negotiate with NBA teams until July 15. He adds that CSKA teammate Andrei Kirilenko is on the fence about a return to the NBA. If Kirilenko decides to play in Russia again next year, Krstic says chances are he would be back with CSKA, too.
  • Von Wafer will play with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese league, agent Terrance Doyle tells HoopsHype, confirming an Orlando Sentinel report. Wafer spent last season with the Magic, who waived him in May. Since the Chinese season finishes much earlier than the NBA, Doyle indicated his client is interested in signing with an NBA team for the stretch run next season.
