The NBA is bringing Andrei Kirilenko and Alexey Shved's former Russian team to town for a preseason game.

Now let's just see if both players are still with the Wolves when CSKA Moscow visits Target Center on Oct. 7.

Kirilenko can opt out of the final $10.2 million year of his two-year contract by Saturday and Shved is one of the few assets the Wolves have to trade if they want to get active on draft night Thursday.

CSKA Moscow also will play at San Antonio on Oct. 9 as part of a two-game American tour, their third visit to North America since 2008.

Kirilenko and Shved played together there during the NBA lockout season two years ago.

The Wolves also will play Toronto on Oct. 12 as part of their two-game preseason Target Center home schedule.

They'll play Boston in Montreal on Oct. 20 as well.

Other games and ticket sales for the Target Center games will be announced later.
