Bucks Pushing To Trade Ersan Ilyasova?

WEDNESDAY, 9:01am: There’s a strong feeling among Bucks brass that it would be better to keep Ilyasova rather than trade him, tweets Marc Stein of

MONDAY, 3:47pm: Gery Woelfel of The Journal Times identified Ersan Ilyasova shortly before the draft as the Buck most likely to be dealt, and the team continues to shop him “hard,” an NBA executive tells Woelfel (Twitter link). Ilyasova is set to make $7.9MM in each of the next two seasons, and he’s been a trade candidate seemingly ever since he signed his five-year, $40MM deal in 2012.

Ilyasova reportedly asked for a trade this past season, though he later said he was “comfortable” in Milwaukee. Ilyasova had said at the time that, “When you go through a season like this and your name comes up [in rumors] it is a little frustrating. But I still feel myself as part of this franchise. I’m hopeful we can find the right pieces for the team so we can play much better because we really need it. I want to be part of a playoff team and that’s what I’m looking forward to, [the franchise] building a better team – a playoff team.

The 27-year-old’s production took a step back in 2013/14, as he averaged 11.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and abysmal 28.2% shooting from three-point range, all numbers that were worse than the season before. Ilyasova was hampered by a nagging ankle injury during the second half of the season which could have contributed to the drop in production.

    I thought I remember Phoenix being named as a possible destination. It seems like that would be a decent fit.

      I agree, the question is who does Phoenix part with? They aren’t getting rid of anyone in the backcourt for Ilyasova, and theres not a lot of pieces in the frontcourt compared to the backcourt

  2. Matt Galvin

    Orlando? Miami?

  3. Jeff Krall

    Sign and trade with Bledsoe

    • ha. for like ilyasova, your next two first round picks, and henson.

      • Crewfan620

        Bledsoe is worth more than Ilyasova for sure. But not 2 future first rounders and Henson. If thats the asking price, Phoenix can keep him and we will draft a 1 or a 2 with our lottery pick next year

    i think if u put him on a winning team and not a dumpster fire like the bucks he’ll have a bounce back season.
    would have been a perfect fit on the bucks until they drafted vonleah. hell hes still a good fit, hornets need shooting..
    also what are the bucks looking for in return?

  5. Zak Arn

    He’s been a letdown since signing that contract and forced the Bucks, The Bucks, to bench him at times to see if that’d get him jump started.

      dragic is going to be a sun for life his wife is from the area thats why he went there when houston offered the same money…

      • Zak Arn

        Huh? I’m commenting on Ersan Ilyasova…

  6. Z....

    I wonder if SVG can go pro and actually move Josh Smith. Milwaukee would be super athletic and can play Smith at the 4 with Brandon Knight, Jabari Parker, Antetokounmpo, John Henson, and Larry Sanders. Its unlikely though. As I said, I dont really see anyone taking back Josh Smith’s contract

    • guccci7383

      josh smith needs to be on the suns. i can see him doing well in there 2 pg offense. i was thinking josh smith for dragic and 1 of the morris twins?

  7. C.K.Rebel

    Knicks need Rebounding and are looking to shed contracts.
    Ilyasova, Wolters, plus picks for J.R. Smith, Larkin, Ellington ?

    • guccci7383

      LLyasova is a strech 4 there are hard to find in todays game, plus hes better then everbody the bucks are getting back, no way they throw picks into that trade..

  8. victor gonzales

    i hope the rockets make a play for him .. maybe montejunas and that capela..
