Spurs interested in Gustavo Ayon?


According to diario.com, the San Antonio Spurs have expressed a strong interest in Gustavo Ayon:

“Los más interesados por ahora, con quienes ya se ha hecho todo formal, bien, es con San Antonio  y con los Soles de Phoenix. Esos son los dos equipos que ya tenemos ahí con un poco de más interés y esperemos que ojalá y se pueda hacer todo bien y podamos ir a su campamento”.

Also in the report, Los Angeles Lakers’ Mitch Kupchak recently went to scout him when he poured in 24 points and 8 rebounds against Barcelona.

Nicknamed “Titan,” Ayon is a 6-10, power forward who plays with ACB of the Spanish league. He is touted as one of the best big men overseas and averages 10.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 65% from the field, and 1.5 blocks.

He has a three-year contract with his current team with an option for a fourth year but should the NBA come calling he will speak with his team at the end of the season.
