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

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:50 PM EST

    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…

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

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:13 PM EST

    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…

    Oct 7, 2013, 11:12 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EST

    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…

    Oct 1, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    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…

    Sep 27, 2013, 9:19 AM EST

    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…

    Sep 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EST

    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…

    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…
