Ilyasova was waived by Milwaukee on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. After the trade between the Bucks and Kings fell through that was supposed to send Ilyasova to Sacramento, Milwaukee has opted to waive the veteran, whose $7 million for 2020-21 was not guaranteed. The 33-year-old will likely draw some interest from other competing teams in free agency. That said, he played a minimal role with the Bucks last season, averaging 6.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in 15.7 minutes.
Ilyasova will remain with the Bucks for the time being, as the deal to send him to the Kings fell through, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The key piece of the deal, Bogdan Bogdanovic, has opted to enter restricted free agency rather than engage in a sign-and-trade with the Bucks. As a result, Ilyasova, Donte DiVincenzo and D.J. Wilson -- the trio originally headed to Sacramento -- will remain with Milwaukee.
Ilyasova was traded to the Kings early Tuesday morning as part of a package that brings Bogdan Bogdanovic to Milwaukee via sign-and-trade, Adrian Wojnarowksi of ESPN reports. Ilyasova is simply a salary throw-in in the deal, and it's unclear if the Kings intend to keep him around. The veteran charge-takings-specialist appeared in 63 games for Milwaukee last season, averaging 6.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in 15.7 minutes.
Ilyasova (elbow) is not on the injury report ahead of Thursday's Game 2 against Orlando. After missing Game 1 with an elbow injury, Ilyasova has been removed from the report and should be available off the bench. The veteran began to lose minutes after the team signed Marvin Williams, so he's unlikely to hold a significant role in the playoffs.
Ilyasova (elbow) will not play in Tuesday's Game 1 against Orlando. The sprained elbow that kept Ilyasova out of the team's final seeding game will sideline him as the Bucks begin postseason play. It's not a significant loss for Milwaukee, as Ilyasvoa's workload began to wane following the addition of Marvin Williams at the deadline.
