Mile Ilic, the Nets 7'-2" center prospect, would like to join the Nets as soon as this summer, but buyout issues and an invitation to try out for the Serbian National Team could interfere. The Serbs will defend their world championships this August in Japan. Nenad Krstic has already committed to play. In addition, Bostjan Nachbar has been formally invited to try out for Slovenia which also will have a team in the worlds. Nachbar is one of five NBA players likely to make the team.
