Orlando Magic center Gustavo Ayon could become a free agent at the end of the season.
The Magic will likely keep Ayon, but the Mexican center could choose to play in Spain instead.
“I would be proud if I could return to Spain and go back to a team like Real Madrid or Barcelona. I prefer Madrid because I know the city better,” Ayon told Marca.com.
Of course, much like Fran Vazquez uses the NBA for leverage in Spain, Ayon could be using Spain for leverage in the NBA.
