Gustavo Ayon

  1. Elton Brand to return for 16th NBA season

    He played solidly for Atlanta after Al Horford went down.

    Can the Pacers regain their early-season swagger now that the playoffs are here?

  3. Hawks’ Gustavo Ayon has shoulder surgery, done for season

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:50 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    After Al Horford went down for the season, Gustavo Ayon was one of the guys who soaked up those minutes and has played decent ball in that role. Make that had played — Ayon is done for the season after right shoulder surgery, the team announced Friday. In his last 10 games Ayon averaged 21…

  4. Clippers trade Antawn Jamison to Hawks, Byron Mullens to 76ers

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:13 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    Antawn Jamison hasn’t filled the stretch-four role the Clippers hoped he would this season. He’s played in only one of the Clippers last 17 games (a 45-point win over the 76ers). Though Jamison has just a minimum contract, that’s still more money than the Clippers need to spend on someone with no upside and no…

  5. Hawks’ Pero Antic out 2-4 weeks with stress fracture in right ankle

    Jan 23, 2014, 4:52 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Since Al Horford went down for the season the Hawks have leaned pretty heavily on rookie Pero Antic — and he’s been solid. In the last three games he’s averaged better than 12 points and 7 rebounds playing at least 23 minutes a night, and on the season he is shooting 36.7 percent from three.…

  6. Hawks’ Ayon leaves game with shoulder injury

    Oct 7, 2013, 11:12 PM EDT

    Gustavo Ayon, Jeff Teague, Norris Cole

    The Atlanta Hawks are expecting a fair amount out of Mexico native Gustavo Ayon this season. Al Horford, Elton Brand and Paul Millsap are the names you know along their reconstructed front line, but Ayon is going to have a nice sized role with that group. At FIBA Americas this summer he played like a guy…

  7. Report: Longtime NBA employee calls 2012-13 Bucks’ locker room worst he’d ever seen

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    The Bucks have had one of the NBA’s busiest offseasons. They traded Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Ish Smith, waived Drew Gooden and Gustavo Ayon, let Monta Ellis, Samuel Dalembert and Mike Dunleavy Jr. walk in free agency and signed-and-traded Brandon Jennings and J.J. Redick. That’s most of the roster turned over, yet it’s…

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Last season: It was the end of an era. Josh Smith‘s final season in Atlanta ended the only way it really could: with plenty of ill-advised shot attempts, tons of highlight-reel plays, and probably most importantly, another early playoff exit. After a first round loss to the Indiana Pacers in six games, it was fair to yet…

  9. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    Last season: The Bucks went 38-44, reaching the playoffs despite a mid-season firing of Scott Skiles. Their high-scoring and high-shooting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis defined the team, but it was really as a team without a strong identity. Before the playoffs began, Jennings predicted the Bucks would beat the Heat in six…

  10. How Al Horford learned to stop worrying and love Danny Ferry

    Sep 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Al Horford admits it. Like a lot of other Hawks fans this summer he wondered what GM Danny Ferry was thinking. Then it all came together. Now Al Horford looks around at the guys working out before training camp starts with the Hawks next week and he thinks he sees the plan. At least he…

  11. Gustavo Ayon earns FIBA Americas MVP

    Sep 12, 2013, 12:08 AM EDT

    ayon bucks

    It’s been a summer of uncertainty for Gustavo Ayon, who had his option picked up by the Bucks in June, only to see the team waive him a month later. The Hawks claimed Ayon off waivers shortly thereafter, and if his performance for Mexico in the FIBA Americas tournament ends up being any indication, Atlanta…

    The 2013 FIBA Americas Championship tournament will wrap up this week, but the important part was concluded on Sunday when the semifinalists were finalized. The top four teams of the tournament automatically earn berths to next year’s FIBA World Cup (an Olympic qualifier) meaning Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Argentina and Mexico are one step closer…

    Puerto Rico's Balkman goes for a basket against Brazil's Giovannoni during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament tipped off on Friday in Caracas, Venezuela, with teams from North, South and Central America attempting to move one step closer to playing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. It’s still a bit early to be talking about that since the tournament won’t end until September 11, but…

    Jose Juan Barea, Nicolas Laprovittola

    The 2013 FIBA Americas Championship tournament begins in beautiful Caracas, Venezuela, on Friday morning. This is actually the fourth FIBA tournament of the year — following Asia (where Hamed Haddadi was MVP), Oceania (which was just Australia vs. New Zealand a couple of times) and Africa (where Nigeria was just upset despite featuring four players…

    Team USA had a mini-camp workout for some younger players this summer, but that was basically it for the senior men’s team. USA Basketball largely gets to take the summer off and gear up for the World Championships in Spain next summer. But much of the rest of the world is going at it in…

  16. Hawks draft pick Lucas Nogueira to play in Spain next season

    Aug 12, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    nogueira hawks

    It was always a possibility that the player the Hawks selected with the 16th overall pick in this year’s draft, Lucas Nogueira, would spend a season developing overseas, and in fact, he told us as much back in June at adidas Eurocamp. Given his strong showing at Summer League in Las Vegas, however, along with the…

  17. Hawks claim Gustavo Ayon off waivers

    Jul 28, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    ayon bucks

    The Bucks waived Gustavo Ayon a few days ago for reasons unknown, but even a big man with the most basic of skill sets on not much more than a minimum salary deal won’t last on the open market for very long. Ayon didn’t end up hitting the open market, and was claimed off waivers by the…

  18. Bucks waive big man Gustavo Ayon

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:06 PM EDT

    ayon bucks

    There was a time, not that long ago, when the Bucks were of the belief that they should retain big man Gustavo Ayon for next season. Back in June, they reportedly decided to pick up his $1.5 million option. A month later, however, before the contract was set to become fully guaranteed, the team has…

  20. As expected, Bucks pick up option on Gustavo Ayon

    Jun 24, 2013, 3:52 PM EDT

    MEXICO-MIGRATION-AYON

    Big man Gustavo Ayon came over to the Milwaukee Bucks as part of the J.J. Redick deal and he played a limited role, playing in just a dozen games for the Bucks. But he looked pretty good in that limited time — he rebounded at a higher rate than he had all through his career…

  21. Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick traded to the Milwaukee Bucks

    Feb 21, 2013, 3:42 PM EDT

    Bobcats Magic Basketball

    There were plenty of rumblings about Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith going to Milwaukee in a blockbuster three-team deal with Orlando, but that trade died when Atlanta reportedly pulled out of the deal. That trade falling apart didn’t deter the Bucks from acquiring a piece to help them in their playoff push, however. Adrian Wojnarowski…

    Thaddeus Young

    Monday night was an easy win for the Sixers — they raced out to a 22-6 lead and really the rest of the game was pretty sloppy and ugly — but it came with a price for Philly: They lost Thaddeus Young to a hamstring injury. You can see what happened in the video above…

    Know this — the scenario about to be laid out tells you what DeMarcus Cousins and his people are thinking and hoping for. What it does not do is tell you the reality of the situation. Not in the least. The reality here is a complex dynamic that starts with Cousins firing his long-time agent…
