The Milwaukee Bucks are close to signing Ersan Ilyasova to a five-year, $45 million deal with a team option in the fifth year, and we have recently articulated our initial reactions to the rumored signing. I covered the statistical analysis of Ilyasova and how he projects with the Bucks, Frank busted out the basic salary cap and roster implications and Dan provided some reasons to be optimistic about Ersan's future with the team. It's all worth reading and it's all well-reasoned, so get at it if you haven't already.

There's a specific undertone to push back against any criticism of big signings in Milwaukee over the past few months and years that has particularly bothered me, so I've taken to the podcast airwaves in a quick 10-minute rant to get it all out of my system. Let me know what you think in the comments.
