Former Milwaukee Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova will face an interesting dilemma when it comes time to decide where he's going to play professional basketball next season. The 6-foot-9 Turkish forward, who played in Europe this season with Regal FC Barcelona, could probably make more money if he stayed overseas rather than return to the Bucks, who continue to hold his rights. However, there could be potential to earn extended playing time in Milwaukee since it's appearing unlikely that forward Charlie Villanueva will be back. Villanueva will be a restricted free agent this summer and, due to a lack of financial flexibility, the Bucks likely would have difficulty matching an offer sheet from another team. However, with word that the National Basketball Association's luxury-tax plateau will be dropping next season, the Bucks may not be able to afford to give Villanueva a qualifying contract offer that would allow them to retain his rights.
