The Atlanta Hawks have claimed Gustavo Ayon off waivers, a league source told RealGM. Ayon was released by the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday with their glut in the frontcourt, but the 6-foot-10 big man received heavy interest due to his inside presence and reasonable contract worth $1.5 million next season. Ayon is expected to get a fair trail to earn a spot in a Hawks rotation that has lacked a young, developing center alongside Al Horford. Ayon, 28, has averaged 4.8 points and 4.3 rebounds in two NBA seasons. The Hawks will be his fourth team.

1. Devin Harris
Remember when Devin Harris was the man for one or two seasons? Yeah, it’s hard or me to remember too because he’s been so mediocre since then. Harris scored 9.9 ppg with the Hawks last year and he shot 43.8% from the field. With 9 years under his belt, he should be a fairly steady veteran PG and he can really score the ball when he has the chance.
