Don't worry, if you opened this article with the express purpose of finding out who exactly this strangely named young man attached to the name Brooklyn was, you probably aren't alone.
Who can blame people for not knowing much about Ersan Ilyasova.
For one thing, he is a Turkish-born player that was taken in the second-round seven years ago. And after playing only one season for Milwaukee in 2007-2008, he quickly bolted for Spain and played professionally there until 2009.
And yet he has been stuck in basketball purgatory in Milwaukee for the last three years.
There's not reason to feel bad if he slipped through the average fan's radar. But while Ilyasova began his career with little fanfare, he certainly should be on a lot of NBA decision-makers' minds now.
Milwaukee would certainly love to have the big man back, but he is certain to command a high raise from his current $2.5 million per season deal.
Here are six reasons why Ilyasova will be a great fit in Brooklyn.
