MINNEAPOLIS -- Andrei Kirilenko and Alexey Shved have been basking in the success of Russia's bronze medal in the Olympics just about long enough. They both say they're ready to come to Minnesota to join the Timberwolves.

Kirilenko and Shved both signed with the Wolves in the off-season. They teamed up on the Russian team that captured bronze in London and will be headed to Minnesota in less than two weeks to join the team before training camp.

Both players have been working to help Russia grow the game and capitalize on the momentum of their successful Olympic run. They are participating in the NBA's "Basketball Without Borders" program that works to promote the game and develop some of the top young basketball players around the world.
