Bucks Sign Ilyasova to Three-Year Deal

Patience is a virtue, and it has paid off for the Milwaukee Bucks in the form of Ersan Ilyasova. A second round pick in 2005 for Milwaukee, Illyasova has spent the last four years either in the D-League or in Spain, with some time on the Bucks roster sprinkled in there as well. But he was drafted as a guy that would help the club years down the road, and those years have finally passed. Illyasova has signed a three-year, $7 million deal that will finally put him back in a Bucks uniform.

While he's been honing his skills, the 22-year old forward has become a solid rebounder, and a legitimate three-point shooter. I really think getting him back in Milwaukee is going to be huge, and maybe the biggest move we'll make this offseason.

He definitely is a sweaty man like you Winks - He easily sweat through his sweatshirt. Something I've only seen from you before.
