Aron Baynes: To play in Australia
Baynes has agreed to a contract with the Brisbane Bullets of the Australian NBL, Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com reports. The contract has an NBA out, which will allow him to return to the NBA if he can find an interested team.

Aron Baynes: Healthy, to work out for teams
Baynes (neck) has recovered from his injury and will be working out for NBA teams in Las Vegas on Friday, Brian Windhorst of ESPN reports.
Baynes was hospitalized for two months and needed to learn how to walk again following a spinal cord injury from a freak fall while playing for the Australian national team in the Tokyo Olympics last summer. The 35-year-old last played for the Raptors in 2020-21, where he averaged 6.1 points and 5.2 rebounds in 18.5 minutes.

The injury is potentially career threatening, as any significant time missed for the 34-year-old would be difficult to return from.... See More ... See Less
Aron Baynes: Let go by Raps
Baynes was waived by the Raptors on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Baynes quickly fell out of favor with coach Nick Nurse last season and often wasn't a meaningful part of the rotation in Toronto. He still managed to average 6.1 points and 5.2 rebounds in 18.5 minutes, but the season was a massive disappointment compared to his surprising 2019-20 campaign with the Suns. As a 34-year-old with issues staying healthy and trouble making an impact last year, it would be surprising if Baynes were to find his way into a fantasy-relevant role this upcoming season....
