Hornets Waiting Until July for Ayon Option?
A USA Today report Friday indicated the Hornets would pick up the option on forward Gustavo Ayon for next season. In reality, the team would not have to exercise that option until July, so it’s unlikely that move would be made much before then.
General Manager Dell Demps could not be reached for comment.
It is likely, however, that Ayon’s play this season — he’s averaging 6.3 points and 4.9 rebounds — has earned him a contract with the Hornets for next season, and possibly beyond.
