## Abstract:

In this note we construct a “Kazhdan-Lusztig type” basis in equivariant $K$-theory of the nilpotent cone of a simple algebraic group $G$. This basis conjecturally is very close to the basis of this $K$-group consisting of irreducible bundles on nilpotent orbits. As a consequence we get a natural (conjectural) construction of Lusztig’s bijection between dominant weights and pairs {nilpotent orbit $\mathcal O$, irreducible $G$-bundle on $\mathcal O$}.## References
