After playing backup to Darko Milicic during Serbia's exhibition game schedule, Mile Ilic will not participate in Eurobasket '07. The 7'-2" Net center was cut by Serb coach Zoran Slavnic Tuesday. According to press reports, Ilic has still not fully recovered from the severely sprained ankle he suffered in the D-League in April. Ilic went for 12 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks last week in Serbia's 96-76 win over China, while helping hold Yi Jianlian to 17 points.
