The Cleveland Cavaliers are interested in free agent Ersan Ilyasova, according to a tweet from NY Post reporter Fred Kerber:
#Nets one time high radar target Ersan Ilyasova drawing interest from Bucks, Cavs, Raptors, Spurs— Fred Kerber (@FredKerber) July 1, 2012
Ilyasova, 25, has played each of his four NBA seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks. The 6-10 native of Turkey averaged 13.0 points and 8.8 rebounds last season. He was originally drafted in 2005 but didn't play in the NBA until the 2006-07 season.
Cleveland has, as expected, had a quiet start to the free agency period. The only news to speak of thus far is that the Cavs extended a qualifying offer to Alonzo Gee, which should help keep the small forward in Cleveland, and that the Cavs are interested in point guard Jonny Flynn.
