The FIBA World Championships are filled with bright young stars, some of them under contract to NBA teams, some still prospects.The Sporting News' Sean Deveney of The Sporting News and Tony Mejia of CBS think that Mile Ilic is one of the top young stars in spite of his limited action so far. "If he can show some polish inside, the Nets will be pleased," Deveney writes. Meanwhile, FIBA lists Ilic among the top youngsters in an online poll, calling him, a "tall, agile, quick big man with good hands who could easily play small forward".
