    Can Ersan Ilyasova play/defend SF? (Millsap)

    I've been trying to research Ersan's defensive abilities but cant find anything regarding him playing SF. He seems like an ideal stretch 4 but with our excess bigs, would he be able to guard SFs? Remember that line-up of Al-Favors-Paul the end of last season & how good we were but the only problem was Paul's inability to stretch the floor. I'm assuming that Paul's lateral quickness is better than Ersan's but how about his ability to put the ball on the floor? Ersan's contract would be less than whatever Paul is going to get & I think he seems to be a better fit because of his versatility.

    We get a versatile forward & a quality pg in Chalmers. This allows us to walk away from re-signing Mo & draft a PG (Smart or Burke) w/ Chalmers handcuffing him...
    i may quote myself from other treads... sue me!

    Ilyasova posts here from time to time, though I doubt he'd give a completely honest answer on his own defensive abilities.

    I think we're the only team who does that deal.

    Make it 100 million times simpler and just do Millsap for Ilyasova.

    Ilyasova is a great player, but he is playing with a bunch of chuckers. Jennings and Ellis are the badest guards I have ever seen.

    Ersan can put it on the floor but not on a SF level. He is more like reliable spot up shooter and when he knocks down his shots he is a lot more dangerous post up player. He is not a low post thread. He is a great team deffense player, if im not mistaken he is #1 or 2 on taking charges in NBA right now. He may not be an around the rim deffender (Sanders complements him on that one) but he got active and long hands, he goes for steals and loose balls.. a hustler briefly on deffensive end.They're not trying him on SF cause they have a guy who can play multiple positions like Moute. But he got quick feets, he is playing against smaller guys against the teams that play small ball and frankly he is doing a good job on that.

    Apart from these he is a good passer for a big, unselfish player, he is choosing his shots and letting the game comes to him (hope for the best at least with a backcourt of Monta and Jennings). And when his confidence level is high he is a consistent player.

    could he guard a Durant, Batum, or a Gallinari?

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?

    Marvin would be better when Marvin is engaged. Otherwise I'd give it to Ilyasova.
