The Way Too Premature Trade Ilyasova Thread.

Let me be clear, I am a fan of Ersan Ilyasova, he was a tough rebounder and scrappy defender who also could step out and shoot the three.  He is basically the opposite of Charlie V., in terms of toughness and tenacity.  I just thought I would set up a post to discuss the topic.

The question, early as it may be, is whether the Bucks will have enough playing time available to keep two stretch fours on the roster.  If not, is Ilyasova the player that should be used to aquire a backup point guard?



 

It is only the second game of Las Vegas Summer league, but Larry Sanders is already showing potential as a stretch four in the NBA.  Not only did he make 2 of 3 threes tonight, but he looked comfortable shooting on the baseline and at the high post as well.  On defense, he shows great instincts as a shot blocker and is active on the boards.

Last year, Ersan Ilyasova played the role of stretch four off the bench.  75% of his shots were jump shots, shooting 34% from three and 42% overall.  He also pulled down 6.4 rebounds in 22 minutes per game.  

Ilyasova would be attractive to other teams for his productivity at a reasonable price.  He will make only $4.8 million over the next two years.  The Prince has also been mentioned by some as a candidate to be traded, but I think his defensive skills stand out enough to keep a spot in next year's rotation.

If Sanders continues to play well through the end of Vegas and in the preseason, is Ilyasova the best asset for the Bucks to trade for a backup point guard?
