Ilic Wants to Join Nets Next Season

In meetings with Nets GM Ed Stefanski in Serbia two weeks ago, Mile Ilic said he wants to join New Jersey next season rather than wait another year. Ilic, a 7'-2" center who was the Nets' second round pick last June, plays for FMP Zeleznik in the Goodyear Adriatic League. Ilic would have to buy out the remainder of his contract, which runs through June 2007. Meanwhile, Tim Thomas who signed with Phoenix last month says the Nets are "still an option" for him next season as well.
