2. Ersan Ilyasova, Power Forward
In a lot of ways, the former Buck is the perfect player for their current roster. He plays a position of need, can shoot threes and plays very underrated defense.
Since leaving Milwaukee after the 2014-15 season, Ilyasova has traveled the league, making stops in Detroit, Orlando, Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, Atlanta and back to Philadelphia again. He could be looking for some stability as he enters his age 31 season.
The Bucks would benefit greatly from his floor-spacing ability, as he’s a career 36.6 percent three-point shooter. If Parker doesn’t re-sign, this would give the Bucks a great option to play alongside Antetokounmpo and Middleton. Ilyasova also knows his role so he’s unlike to dominate the ball and take possessions out of the two Bucks’ stars.
His defensive acumen is also enticing. He’s not the most athletic player in the world, but he plays hard and is a very intelligent player. He knows how to read offenses and does a great job of stepping up and taking charges. It would be fun to have Ilyasova back on the team again.
