Ayon recently re-signed with Spanish club Real Madrid on a three-year contract, EuroHoops.net reports. Ayon attracted interest from many top European clubs, but decided to stick with the team that he helped lead to a Euroleague title in 2014-15. He was again one of Real Madrid's top players this past season, averaging 11.6 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. The 31-year-old is now two seasons removed from playing in the NBA and at this point appears likely to finish his career overseas.
Free agent forward Gustavo Ayon is expected to leave the NBA to sign a contract with Real Madrid, but EuroHoops.net reported Tuesday there are complications with his deal. According to the report, the Spurs are still interested in Ayon, indicating that there are some hang-ups with his contract in Spain. Ayon is fully recovered from shoulder surgery that ended his season with the Hawks after 26 games, as he showed in the FIBA World Cup tournament. He averaged 17.6 points and 7.6 rebounds per game in five games for team Mexico.
Hawks forward Gustavo Ayon underwent season-ending surgery on his right shoulder on Friday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Ayon had been dealing with shoulder issues all year. He missed the first eight games of the season with an injury to the same shoulder, and then suffered an injury to the same shoulder on Feb. 18 before undergoing surgery. Ayon was averaging 4.3 points and 4.8 rebounds through 26 games.
Hawks forward Gustavo Ayon was unable to play yet again Wednesday against the Celtics, as he continues to deal with a shoulder injury. Ayon has already missed four games as a result of the injury, but had been optimistic about his chances of returning for part of the team's current back to back. His next chance to play does not come until Sunday in Phoenix.
Hawks forward Gustavo Ayon was hoping to return Tuesday against the Bulls, but his shoulder injury will keep him out at least one more game. The team ruled Ayon out for Tuesday's game, though he remains day to day and could return Wednesday.
