Ersan Ilyasova is doing Ilyasova things so far this season. Namely, starting off really badly and then improving as the season goes along. Does this dude just not work out at all during the summer? He didn’t even have the “Gotta play for my national team, Egemenlik, kayıtsız şartsız Milletindir” excuse this year.
Anyway, his recent decent play is good news for Bucks fans, who have wanted to trade him for a long time. Not because he’s a bad player or because they don’t like him, but because he seems like the kind of player a contender would really covet. I’m not convinced that a super-streaky jump shooter is what the upper-echelon teams are desiring, but I’m not a GM.
