    A talented player wanting out of Milwaukee is pretty much par for the course... but we don't need Ilyasova, and we'd be giving up someone we do need (they're not taking novak fields and daye sadly), probably a pick, and cap space

    I really doubt the next team Taj plays for is going to make him be a backup. Even is CHI keeps him, I dont know how long boozer lasts

    PP plays the Illyasova role better than than Illyasova.

    We need a bruising back up big that can shore up our D so we arent so exposed in the post.
    How about someone like Brandon Bass? Not sure if Boston would trade him. He has a nice contract (expires after next season). A pretty good defender of the paint and can also defend quicker PF/SF's like Carmelo or James. Might take a first round pick to pry him away and I don't think he's worthy of a first round pick. Plus other teams are interested (based on rumours) which makes his value even higher

    Ilyasova has an alright contract. His last year is only guaranteed for $400K. So he's essentially an expiring contract in 2016. He's had a terrible year but he is playing on a really bad team. Not sure how I feel about giving up that precious cap space in 2015 for a guy like him. Even though he could probably be had for cheap (one of the 2016 picks and Salmons) it's not the type of guy I'd want right now.

    I think he'd be great next to Howard in Houston.
    For sure. might be a good way for them to unload Asik.

    Can Ilyasova play the 3 spot?

    He can play both but his better position is PF (and he is listed as that). He is a bit of a tweener...light for the PF position but slow (has good length though) for the 3 imo (on defense). What he really brings to the table are his intangibles in addition to decent levels of scoring, defense, rebounding. Not flashy but good bb IQ. He is signed for 5yrs/40 mill. This hasnt been his best year but then not for the Bucks either!!

    I think we are better off with Patterson for a lot less money.

    Meh. There are lots of SFs who can pick and pop and hit a 3. There are few PFs who can do that and still play decent defense. Ilyasova is one of those few -- well, not this year.

    So no way you are getting him to play SF. Maybe he "can" be decent at it but it's a waste of his talents.
