Ersan Ilyasova has, for many years, been a fine basketball player. A 6-foot-10 power forward for the Atlanta Hawks, Ilyasova was averaging 13.8 points and 5.8 rebounds a game through Thursday. He is a dependable defender and an excellent outside shooter. He even has a cool nickname: Turkish Thunder. But Ilyasova, 29, does one thing better than anyone else in the N.B.A., a specialized skill that often goes unnoticed: He draws charges like a magnet. “He knows exactly where to be,” the Hawks’ first-year guard Malcolm Delaney said. “He’s always in the right place.”
“No, it’s hard to say,” Budenholzer said before Monday’s game against the Warriors when asked if Calderon would be the backup. “I think Malcolm has been great all year. We are really pleased with how he’s played. Malcolm brings a lot to the table. But I think it’s great to have Jose as another … to get through the majority of the season without a third point guard is unusual.”
