NBA Rumors: Milwaukee Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova wants out

Milwaukee Bucks’ forward Ersan Ilyasova is not happy in Milwaukee.

Due to playing time, injuries, the way he is being used and the Bucks having the worst record in the league, he has grown increasing frustrated.

“It’s really frustrating,” Ilyasova told the Journal Times. “I was coming from overseas and playing in the European Championships for Turkey, but then I started training camp with a new team, with new coaches.

“Then, in the first preseason game, I hurt my ankle. The season started for me, like off balance. If you miss part of training camp with a new team and new coaches, you find yourself a little behind, learning new plays and trying to find the right chemistry.”

Ilyasova downplayed any notion that he wanted out of Milwaukee, but his desire for a fresh start seems obvious.

He would be a very nice addition any team. He’s only averaging 10.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game on the year, but last season, Ilyasova put up 13.2 points and 7.1 rebounds per game while shooting 44.4% from beyond the arc.

The New York Knicks are one team that are rumored to be interested in acquiring Ilyasova.
