The Milwaukee Bucks have said all along that they would like Ersan Ilyasova to return to Milwaukee this season. The team issued a statement on Sunday saying “We are engaged in free agent negotiations with Ersan Ilyasova. We intend to enter into a player contract with Ersan once the moratorium period has ended.”
The 6’10 Ilyasova agreed to a 5-year, $45 million deal after averaging 13 points and 8.8-rebounds in 60 games for the Bucks last season. Free agents can’t officially sign new deals until Wednesday.
