Ilic Typical of How Europe Develops Hoop Talent

In a lengthy Washington Post article on how European countries develop basketball talent, the case of Mile Ilic is cited as typical of one aspect of the process. Ilic was one of five players sold to other European and American teams last year by FMP Zeleznik. The sales, totalling $3.5 million, permitted FMP to develop new talent and keep going. The Nets reportedly paid FMP $1 million for Ilic's rights.
