Sort of the same problem a guy like Gecevicius has. He can do well in a team where the coach isn't emphasizing defense. Puerto Rico's coach is defensive minded, but he has no choice but to use Ayuso a lot. Since he can shoot and since no one on that team except Santiago and Balkmna plays any defense. Plus he fits perfectly into their street ball style offense, even though their coach is a European style guy.

Their coach is pretty much at the mercy of how street ball Puerto Rico is with guys like Barea and Arroyo.

He played at least 8 games in Euroleague

Who knows if he was cut or injured but he didn't finish the season.
