Colangelo wanted Ersan Ilyasova in the Charlie.V-TJ deal
The Bucks are high on the 19-year-old Ilyasova. So apparently are the Toronto Raptors. According to two league officials, the Raptors wanted Ilyasova to be part of the trade that sent T.J. Ford to Toronto for Charlie Villanueva.
they should be high on him , he was voted the best young player at the Fiba world champships this year, beating out tons of young talent to get the vote including Splitter, Sofo, Tripkovic, Akol, Bellinelli and Kalenitis.
i'm not surprised we kept Ersan..he's still really young but was supposed to be first round talent when we got him in the second round. after this season when ruben patterson is a free agent, the bucks should be giving ilyasova, david noel, and damir markota some playing time. we have some good young prospects..
