Celtics plan to sign Aron Baynes to 1 year deal
Monday Jul 10, 2017 12:00am

(BOSTON) – The Boston Celtics plan to sign free-agent center Aron Baynes to a one year, $4.3 million contract, according to a league source. The 6 foot 10 Baynes, born in New Zealand but an Australia national, averaged 4.9 points and 4.4 rebounds over 15.5 minutes per game last season in Detroit for the Pistons. Baynes provides much-needed help on the defensive glass, grabbing 21.6 percent of all defensive caroms when he was on the floor last season. The Celtics can't officially sign Baynes until a sequence of moves that will include first signing Gordon Hayward. Boston traded Avery Bradley to Detroit last week to generate the necessary cap space to sign Hayward to a maximum-contract salary that starts at $29.7 million for the 2017-18 season. The Celtics were thin up front with the recent departures of Kelly Olynyk (four years, $50 million with Miami) and Amir Johnson (one year, $11 million with Philadelphia). Baynes adds a bruiser to Boston's big-man depth chart in which the only other veteran is Al Horford. The 30 year old Baynes is a veteran of five NBA seasons. He began his NBA career with the San Antonio Spurs in 2013 and has averaged 5.2 points and 4.1 rebounds over 14.1 minutes per game for his career.
