Bucks sign Damir Markota
 
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed Damir Markota to a multi-year contract, General Manager Larry Harris announced today. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

“Damir is a skilled, young player who we felt fortunate to acquire on draft night,” said Harris. “Having followed his professional career in Europe, we believe he has the necessary tools to be a productive NBA player. He will have every opportunity to continue his development by competing at the NBA level.

Probably going to do time in the D-League.

Bucks' fans: Any word on what they plan to do with Ersan Ilyasova yet?

NBDL again or on the bench with the Bucks?

I think he was the only player in the NBA last season who was sent down for the ENTIRE season.

Bogut australian
Ilyasova turkey
Kukoc croatian
Gadzuric dutch
Jiri Welsch czech

He definately will be on the roster this year. He's improved by leaps and bounds and has put on some muscle. I'll get a video that was posted recently...some U-20 tourney he was playing in.

That is what I was figuring. I expect him to even play some solid minutes with Kukoc likely not returning and Magloire getting traded.

Is he a wing player? Bucks are starving for wing players, if he is he'll get time.

Markota is a SF/PF. 6'10 guy who can shoot and rebound a bit from what I've read.

Markota is also good friends with Bogut apparently. Probably a reason we rushed him to the states this year instead of keeping him in Europe for another season.

Here's one of Ilyasova's vids:
