   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 4
2010-01-03

- Ryan Ayers

Ayers played last year for Notre Dame, where he was awesomely average. At 6'7, Ayers had good size for a wing player, and he was also athletic. He also had a pretty sweet jumpshot out to three point range, and could defend. Yet all he did was take jumpshots; there was no desire to put the ball on the floor, nor any success when he did. You have to love role players like that.

After going undrafted, Ayers went to the Wizards for summer league, but didn't make it through the tryout phase. He reappeared in the D-League, allocated to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, for whom he has started 10 of 13 games. Not much has changed in his style of play; Ayers averages 7.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.5 blocks in 26 minutes per game, shooting 44% from the field, 44% from three point range and 100% from the line. He has taken 41 three pointers in 13 games compared to 6 foul shots. He does what he does, and that's why I like him.
