Bucks Waive Gustavo Ayon
The Milwaukee Bucks announced Thursday they have waived 6-foot-10 forward Gustavo Ayon, who was the only active Mexican-born player in the NBA.
The Bucks released Ayon prior to a Friday deadline that would have guaranteed his $1.5 million salary for next season.
Ayon was acquired from Orlando last February along with J.J. Redick and Ish Smith, in the trade deadline deal that sent forward Tobias Harris and guards Doron Lamb and Beno Udrih to the Magic. The 28-year-old Ayon played in 12 games for the Bucks last season and averaged 4.3 points and 4.9 rebounds.
