Kirby on Brittney Griner: ‘We Have Made a Serious Proposal’

‘As far as we’re concerned, negotiations will continue’

EXCERPT:

TURNER: “Do you still feel like you’re operating from a position of strength there? You say the deal has been on the table for multiple weeks and still nothing has come to fruition.”

KIRBY: “Well, the fact that nothing has come to fruition is on the Russians. It’s not on the American side. We made a serious proposal, we’re working on this very, very hard. And as far as we’re concerned, negotiations will continue. We made it clear that we have an offer that we want the Russians to take seriously. We want Brittney and Paul home. And again, we’re willing to keep talking to the Russians about that.”
