Before coming to Europe, Ilian played on college level in the USA for the North Carolina State University from 2001-2006. Evtimov signed his first professional contract with Vidivici Bologna in 2006 winning the second place of the Italian national Championship. The next season he has joined the Deutsche Bank Skyliners where he averaged 13.1ppg, grabbing 5.1rpg over the past two seasons. Ilian, who possesses dual citizenship, Bulgarian and French, has an older brother, Vasco, who also played in the best european leagues.
