Ersan Ilyasova is poised to hit unrestricted free agency this offseason, but there are a few non-NBA clubs that would like to get ahold of him before then. Ilyasova told Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times that five European teams have made him offers, and are trying to buy out his Bucks contract.
Given Ilyasova's recent performance, it makes sense that the Bucks have turned down any and all offers to date. With injuries plaguing Milwaukee's front-court, the 6'10" forward has been dominant on the boards over his last eight contests, averaging 9.1 rebounds in just under 23 minutes per game.
Ilyasova figures to remain a Buck for the rest of this season, but he hasn't made any decisions yet when it comes to his free agency.
"It's hard to say where I'll be next season," said the 24-year-old. "It's going to be about the money difference (whether he remains in the NBA or goes overseas). It's always business. I don't want to think about it because I don't want it to affect my game. We'll see what happens."
