The San Antonio Spurs have expressed interest in signing Mexico star center Gustavo Ayon, ESPN.com has learned. Ayon ranks as one of the top free agents playing at the FIBA World Cup starting Saturday in Spain and, according to league sources, has emerged as a late-summer target for the NBA's reigning champions. Sources say San Antonio remains determined to re-sign Australian center Aron Baynes -- who will square off against Ayon on Wednesday when the Aussies meet Mexico in Group D play -- but has identified Ayon as both a potential Baynes replacement or a possible addition to the roster even if a new deal with Baynes is worked out.

Hawks restricted free agent center Gustavo Ayon said his surgically-repaired shoulder is not 100 percent and he may not be able to play for Mexico in the upcoming World Cup. Ayon is currently at a training camp in Mexico City with the national team. “If I’m not recovered, I’m not going to the World Cup,” Ayon said in a translated statement. “I will only hurt the team. I’m still working and if the shoulder lets me play, I will surely, but if I have questions, I will not. “I’m fine physically, but the shoulder is not a hundred percent, so even though I can feel good while the injury is not healed completely, I will not be able to play.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
