At least one European team and possibly others may soon be making a bid for the services of Mile Ilic, the 7'-2" Nets draft choice. Ilic's agent and the Nets have made tenative moves to get him signed for next season. Svatislav Pesic, the new coach of Akasvayu Girona in Spain, has spoken positively of Ilic. FMP, Ilic's Serbian team, could sell his contract to Girona or permit him to buy it out and join the Nets. Girona outbid the Magic last year for draft choice Fran Vasquez.
