    Everybody, you realize that Ilyasova only put up monster numbers because he was in a contract year, right? Normally, he isn't all that much of an improvement over Kleiza. It'd be like us going after Turkoglu again, who had a monster contract year, and after he got paid was terrible.

    How do you mean "better?" His results in actual basketball game are worse than both by quite a large margin, take a look at 82games simple rating, Win's Produced or even PER. What makes you say he is better?
    He has more raw talent than both of them combined. No one wants Ilyasova we already have 2 tweeners on this team

    How do you know that? Do you have a raw-talent-o-scope?

    His performance in actual basketball games does not confirm this.

    I can agree with Raptorsss in as much as that up until last year Ilysova looked only slightly better than Kleiza, but Kleiza never had a year like Ilysova's last, neither has Turkoglu, and neither ever will.

    Dude was elite last year, and sure it was a contract year, but the performance he put in demonstrates a level of play that can't be explained by simply a high level of motivation.

    Will DeRozan have a breakout year like Ilysova? Maybe, who knows, but might is not the same as did.

    I personally don't get the Ilyasova love either.

    Agreed. I see Turk 2.0. BC... stay away... far away!

    Off the top of my head, I think Ilyasova and Lin are the two most overrated free agents this season. What scares me, is that I could see BC targeting both of them! yikes!

    I don't mind Lin. I think he'll be a good PG one day. There's a lot of Brandon Roy in his game.

    But I don't like the idea of overpaying in order to pry him away from New York.
