01:48 PM ET 03.24 | Gustavo Ayon doesn't know much about his future. He does, however, wish to represent his native Mexico in the sport of basketball. And if that means more opportunity to do so will be found overseas, perhaps the NBA isn't in his plans. Traded from the Orlando Magic to the Milwaukee Bucks this season, he's found little playing time behind a deep frontcourt. It's frustrating for Ayon, who simply wants to contribute. The Bucks hold a $1.5 million player option for next season, and coach Jim Boylan likes what he sees so far. Still, the future is unknown. "Without stability and regular playing time I find it hard to motivate myself," Ayon told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "I want to be playing, not sitting on the bench. If in a year my contract runs out and I am not playing here I would return to Europe."

Ayon is a decent big, but if he's looking for starter type minutes, he won't get that. But he would be good as role player on most teams. I'd bet the Heat would show some interest in the off-season.

Where was it before? Limbo sounds like a move up the ladder.
