The Spurs have one roster spot left, besides the training camp invites they've made recently, and although they still have a qualifying offer out to Aron Baynes, that doesn't mean they're just sitting around waiting for Banger to come back home to San Antone. According to Mark Stein, the Spurs have cast their eye on Gustavo Ayon.

I'm not sure what it looks like when a rumble dribbles, but it's not the end of the world for the Aussie, because:

In the last four years, Ayon has played for four teams -- New Orleans, Milwaukee, Orlando, and Atlanta -- and averaged between 5.9 and 3.6 points per game and in between 13.3 and 20.1 minutes a game.

In years past, the Spurs have made it a practice to enter the season with at least one roster spot available. But perhaps this year they'll tip off opening night with a full 15 players under contract.

We'll bring you more information as it's available.
