Will Duncan and Ginobili return next season? What’s your feeling on what they’ll decide on? Aron Baynes: I’m not sure. Those guys are still playing phenomenal basketball, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they went on, but at the end of the day, they have to do what’s best for them. I’m just sitting back and waiting to see like everyone else.
Not all their news is good, however. Center Aron Baynes (sprained ankle) will not suit up for the game.
Griffin’s “posterizing” of Baynes exploded on social media and attracted unsympathetic coverage from major US news sites. It also prompted a rewriting of Baynes’ Wikipedia page. “Aron John Baynes (born 9 December 1986) is an Australian professional basketball player who currently plays for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association (NBA) who was reduced to a smoldering pile of ash by Blake Griffin during the 2015 NBA Playoffs,” it began.
Brad Turner: Popovich said Aron Baynes will start at center if Tiago Splitter can’t play #NBAplayoffs
Dan McCarney: Also, no exaggeration, BAYNES did like a full P90X workout in the locker room before the game, in which he scored 13. He is an animal.
When told of how back in November Baynes’ Spurs teammates joked about him being held out of practices in fear he would injure them, Ingles laughed and agreed Baynes is a strong player, but only because he’s trying to do his best. “It doesn’t surprise me at all,” said Ingles of Baynes being withheld from practices. “Yeah, there’s a few. He’s an aggressive guy. He obviously doesn’t do it on purpose, but the way he plays, he goes so hard, that sometimes he loses control of his body a little bit. It’s more him just going hard and trying to do the best he can, than actually trying to hurt somebody.”
Shams Charania: Aron Baynes’ new contract to re-sign with the San Antonio Spurs is for one season, with fully guaranteed salary, league source tells RealGM.
The San Antonio Spurs today announced that they have re-signed Aron Baynes. Per club policy, terms of the contract were not announced.
Backup center Aron Baynes, a restricted free agent and the last remaining unsigned member of last season’s NBA championship squad, is in town to take a physical and is expected to re-up with the club before the start of training camp Saturday. The news was first reported on Twitter by the Express-News’ Buck Harvey.
Marc Stein: ESPN sources say Yao Ming’s Shanghai Sharks are among teams in China making a hard push to sign Aussie C Aron Baynes away from San Antonio
Marc J. Spears: The Spurs are open to sign and trade offers for restricted FA C Aron Baynes, who played well for Australia at the World Cup, a source said.
The San Antonio Spurs have expressed interest in signing Mexico star center Gustavo Ayon, ESPN.com has learned. Ayon ranks as one of the top free agents playing at the FIBA World Cup starting Saturday in Spain and, according to league sources, has emerged as a late-summer target for the NBA’s reigning champions. Sources say San Antonio remains determined to re-sign Australian center Aron Baynes — who will square off against Ayon on Wednesday when the Aussies meet Mexico in Group D play — but has identified Ayon as both a potential Baynes replacement or a possible addition to the roster even if a new deal with Baynes is worked out.
Marc Stein: Spurs, I’m told, still determined to re-sign Aussie C Aron Baynes but also like Mexico’s Ayon, who’s among top free agents in FIBA World Cup
With the likes of Boris Diaw, Patty Mills and Matt Bonner having earned new contracts, the lone member of the Spurs’ 2014 championship team yet to re-sign is restricted free agent center Aron Baynes. Well-known Turkish sportscaster Ismael Senol tweeted on Sunday that while Baynes hopes to return to San Antonio, he’s also begun to explore options overseas in the hopes of signing for at least $1.5 million Euros. Baynes, 27, has been a marginal contributor since joining the Spurs in Jan. 2013. He averaged 3.0 points and 2.7 rebounds with a 9.7 Player Efficiency Rating — 15.0 is average — in 53 appearances last season.
Aron Baynes hopes to re-sign with the San Antonio Spurs, but he is also exporing potential deals with European teams. Baynes is reportedly searching for a contract worth $1.5 million Euros. The Spurs extended Baynes a qualifying offer to make him a restricted free agent.
The duo they were a guest on an Australian Fox Sports News show, speaking on winning the title, their experience with the Spurs, Mills learning from Tony Parker, Baynes’ future in the NBA, Team Australia’s chances at the 2014 FIBA World Cup and much more. But Mills and Baynes get video bombed by none other than the reporter they first video bombed (and shoved Mills near his surgically-repaired shoulder no less) during their interview.
