Ilyasova has fully established himself in the NBA with the Milwaukee Bucks with 18 double-doubles in 73 games, averaging 13.1 points and 7.1 rebounds for the season to go along with 44% shooting from three-point range. One concern however is that he sometimes disappears in games. Ilyasova returns to the national team after taking last summer off but he now returns to be a leader for the Turks in Slovenia. The forward is a great rebounder who can drive to the basket and is also comfortable shooting from long range. He is also still a very strong defender who can stop a number of positions. Ilyasova is a perfect piece for a squad stacked with so many veteran leaders as he is willing - and able - to do whatever his team needs to win.
