RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

Coming off of a difficult year marred by nagging injuries, Ilyasova will look to re-solidify himself as a starting-caliber power forward. The 27-year-old endured arguably his worst NBA season in 2013-14, averaging 11.2 points and 6.2 rebounds while shooting just 41 percent from the field and a career-low 28 percent from beyond the arc. His injuries began in the preseason when he was sidelined with a severely sprained ankle. The ankle would continue to hamper him throughout the year, eventually leading to him being shut down with 12 games remaining. With a full summer to recover, the ankle issues should be a thing of the past. The question now is: how does Ilyasova factor into the Bucks' future? The selection of Jabari Parker in June's draft seems to make Ilyasova more expendable than ever, and it's no secret the Bucks wouldn't mind getting the $24.2 million he's owed over the next three seasons off the books. In all likelihood, Ilyasova will open the season as the starting power forward – assuming Jason Kidd views Parker as a small forward – and he'll compete with Khris Middleton and John Henson for minutes. If a team puts forth an intriguing trade offer, though, Ilyasova could find himself playing elsewhere at some point this season.

2013-14

Ilyasova's 2012-13 campaign was a tale of two halves. He was a massive disappointment for the first half of the season, averaging just 11.2 points (44 percent from the field, 76 percent from the line), 6.2 rebounds and 1.1 three-pointers made before the All-Star break. With a coaching change and some added confidence, Ilyasova managed to finish the season strong, averaging 17.2 points (49 percent from the field, 87 percent from the line), 9.0 rebounds and 1.7 three-pointers made after the All-Star break. While this certainly makes his 2013-14 outlook harder to gauge, a shift in the backcourt lineup from Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis to Brandon Knight and O.J. Mayo will undoubtedly change they dynamics of the Bucks offense, allowing more chances for Ilyasova to shine, if he makes most of his opportunities. With young forward John Henson making his presence known in the roster, Ilyasova may see his minutes cut if he does not impress right from the get-go. Regardless, he is still likely be a solid fantasy contributor this coming season.

2012-13

Raise your hand if you won your fantasy basketball league and had Ilyasova on your team. The forward from Turkey capitalized on injuries to other Bucks frontcourt players to breakout in 2011-12, shooting 45 percent from 3-point range while averaging 13.0 points and 8.8 rebounds in just 27.6 minutes per game. He finished second in voting for the league�s Most Improved Player award. Ilyasova has shown flashes of promise plenty of times throughout his career. When finally given an extended look last season, he seemed to display real improvement, and not just a player getting more minutes. He shot six percentage points better from the field and 16 percentage points better from 3-point range, relative to the previous season. Ilyasova emerged from a crowded forward rotation mid-season and averaged 16.1 points and 9.1 rebounds in 30.1 minutes per game after the All-Star break. Ilyasova was in the final year of a deal before becoming an unrestricted free agent, so there is an argument out there that he was more motivated to play for a new contract. Ilyasova will be the team�s primary option in the frontcourt, but the team will continue to be lead by Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis in the backcourt.

2011-12

Ilyasova is a versatile forward who rebounds hard and can shoot from the perimeter, but with a lot of forwards on the Bucks’ roster deserving of playing time, his minutes will likely be capped at around 25 per game. As such, he’s more of a guy to keep an eye on than a guy to consider late in drafts.

2010-11

Observant fantasy owners and NBA fans will know now, if they didn't already before, that last year wasn't Ilyasova's first in the NBA. The 6-10 Turk was actually selected by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round (36th overall) of the 2005 NBA Draft, at which point he went on to play 46 games Bucks' D-League team. Ilyasova then played 66 games with the Bucks in the 2006-07 season before going to play for FC Barcelona. He showed in his original NBA go-around largely what he showed last year, too (if slightly more refined in the latter case): an intriguing blend of big man skills and shooting ability. Per 36 minutes, Ilyasova averaged 9.8 rebounds and 1.5 threes last season. That's not a combination you're likely to find among many other players. Only problem is, he was only able to net about 23 minutes per contest. Nor is that likely to change this season: with the acquisitions of Drew Gooden at the four and Corey Maggette at the three, Ilyasova's chance of crossing the 30-minute threshold is slim. If he does, though, he certainly profiles as a decent player at the end of a roster.

2009-10

Ilyasova played the last two seasons in Europe, but is still just 22 years old. He’s been drawing favorable reviews while playing with the Turkish national team this summer and could provide the Bucks will some scoring help. His defense will be a bit lacking, but he can make up for it with his offense.
