The Brooklyn Nets will look to sign Milwaukee Bucks restricted free-agent forward Ersan Ilyasova if the team isn't able to land Dwight Howard, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

Ilyasova will visit two teams with salary-cap space this week, including the Cleveland Cavaliers, but according to Wojnarowski, the Bucks will match any offer to retain the 25-year-old from Turkey:

The Bucks have offered Ilyasova a five-year contract worth nearly $40 million, league sources said, and so far have shown no desire to partner in a sign-and-trade deal that the Nets need to acquire him. [S]o far, the Bucks are unmoved over sign-and-trade options for Ilyasova and are determined to keep him.
