Mile IlicThe New Jersey Nets have signed Mile Ilic, the team’s second round pick in the 2005 NBA Draft, Nets President Rod Thorn announced today. As per club policy, terms of the agreement were not announced.

"We are pleased to add Mile to our roster," said Thorn. "He is an athletic seven-footer who will add depth of our frontcourt in the future."

The 7’2” native of Serbia was selected with the 43rd pick of the 2005 NBA Draft, but spent all of last season playing for FMP Zeleznik Beograd in the Adriatic League. During the 2005-06 campaign, Ilic averaged 8.4 points and 4.4 rebounds and finished second in Adriatic League play with 1.6 blocks per game in 29 contests. The 22-year-old also helped lead FMP Zeleznik Beograd to their second Adriatic League championship in the last three years as he saw his point and rebound averages improve for the third consecutive season.

A member of the Serbian national team, Ilic also played on the gold medal winning team at the 2003 World University Games.

InsideHoops.com Editor Says: Ilic isn't expected to play much. Not at first, at least. The hope is that he'll overtake Jason Collins, but for now Collins has the nod.
