Report: Spurs show interest in Ilyasova

The NBA free agency period is in full swing and if you are like me, you are probably getting whiplash.

Sifting through the reports on possible player movement, the San Antonio Spurs are also in the mix of reports when it comes to attracting free agents.

According to Fred Kerber of the New York Post, San Antonio is interested in Bucks free agent Ersan Ilyasova.

Ilyasova would help solve the Spurs size issues. The 6’10” power forward averaged career-highs of 13 points, 8.8 rebounds, 0.7 blocks and shot 49% from the field last season with the Bucks.

And while Ersan would help the Spurs in the middle, however, one has to wonder how this will work if reports are true Erazem Lorbek will be making his way to San Antonio.

Tim Duncan will continue his play at center, Kawhi Leonard will start at small forward, which leaves either Ilyasova or Lorbek off the bench. Will either be OK with that role after being starters? Perhaps. Tiago Splitter accepted a role off the bench for the Spurs after being a started overseas for years.

Moreover, after having a career-season statistically, Ilyasova might be looking for a pay day which could price him out of the Spurs’ reach.

What do you think Spurs fans? Should Spurs go after Ersan or pass?
