Aron Baynes played 18 minutes in a start against the Kings on Saturday with two points, two boards and three assists.
The plan to start Baynes didn't work in a losing effort. He's been somewhat effective as a second-unit big, but his minutes will be capped as long as Tim Duncan is healthy. Nov 16 - 2:32 AM

Aron Baynes will replace Matt Bonner in the starting lineup on Saturday vs. the Kings.

Looks like coach Popovich is just expressing himself once again as the Spurs roll with yet another new lineup. Baynes can be a double-double threat if he gets the minutes but it is too hard to guess knowing how often the rotation fluctuates. Baynes is someone for deep league owners to monitor while Bonner should not be owned in almost any league.
Nov 15 - 10:17 PM

Aron Baynes started in place of Tim Duncan (rest) and had 12 points, 12 rebounds and a steal in 31 minutes on Thursday.

If you threw him into a daily lineup, the move paid off, but he has no fantasy value on most nights.
Nov 6 - 10:42 PM

Aron Baynes and Matt Bonner are starting for the Spurs on Thursday night against the Rockets.

With Tim Duncan (rest) out and Tiago Splitter (calf) out, the Spurs are starting a truly unique front line tandem. Neither player should be a consideration for fantasy owners in the short or long term.

Aron Baynes, who re-signed with the Spurs as a free agent this summer, came off the bench for four points, two rebounds and one block in 18 minutes vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Baynes is a blue-collar big man who serves as emergency frontcourt depth, and his minutes increased tonight with Tiago Splitter (calf) out. He shot 90.5 percent at the FT line last year, but that's where his appeal ends -- he averaged 3.0 points on 43.6 percent shooting, 2.7 rebounds and 0.1 blocks while appearing in just 53 games.
Oct 28 - 11:19 PM

The Spurs officially re-signed Aron Baynes on Friday.

Baynes averaged just 3.0 points and 2.7 rebounds through 9.3 minutes of action with the Spurs last season, so he's not on the fantasy radar in any format.
Sep 26 - 3:32 PM

The San Antonio Spurs are close to re-signing restricted free agent Aron Baynes.

Baynes is reportedly in San Antonio to take a physical and is expected to sign before the start of training camp on Saturday. The 27-year-old Australian only averaged 3.0 points and 2.7 rebounds in 9.3 minutes per game in 2013-14, so fantasy owners can feel free to look elsewhere.
Sep 25 - 9:54 AM

Aron Baynes has received interest from the Shanghai Sharks.

He's still a restricted free agent, but the Spurs haven't made any noticeable effort to bring him back. The Sharks are Yao Ming's team and Baynes would likely get significant minutes compared to his marginal role with the Spurs.
Sep 19 - 11:27 AM

The Spurs are open to a sign-and-trade deal for restricted free agent Aron Baynes.

He's not getting quite as many headlines as fellow restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe, but Baynes does have some upside. He averaged 16.8 points per game with the Australian team at FIBA and would almost certainly have more value on another team.
Sep 15 - 12:35 PM

Free agent Aron Baynes finished Australia's loss to Turkey with 15 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

Cavs guard Matthew Dellavedova added 13 points and five assists for Australia, but they fell by one point in an elimination game at the FIBA World Cup. Baynes is considering signing overseas for more money than he'd make on a minimum-salary NBA contract. The Spurs are interested in retaining him, but they're considering free agent Gustavo Ayon as a backup option if Baynes does head overseas.
Sep 7 - 8:32 PM

The Spurs remain "determined" to re-sign C Aron Baynes this summer, but they're also interested in FA big man Gustavo Ayon.

Baynes is considering signing overseas for around $1.5 million annually, and Ayon has been pursued by at least one team in China. If either guy does end up in San Antonio, they will be fantasy afterthoughts in a frontcourt that includes Tim Duncan, Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw, Matt Bonner and Jeff Ayres.
Aug 30 - 9:31 AM

Restricted free agent Aron Baynes is entertaining the idea of playing overseas for at least $1.5 million next season.

He's more of just emergency depth with the Spurs and only played 9.3 minutes per game last season. Baynes is a large paint presence and opponents couldn't handle him at lower-level competition like summer league, so he would likely be an above-average player out of the NBA.
Aug 25 - 9:13 AM

Restricted free agent Aron Baynes would like to stay with the Spurs, but is also exploring options in Europe.

The Spurs extended a qualifying offer to Baynes that would allow them to match any offer he receives during free agency, but the 27-year-old has yet to receive an offer. While Baynes only played 9.3 minutes per game during the 2013-14 season, he provides the Spurs with a big body off the bench and could wind up back in San Antonio if he doesn't receive any strong offers from a European team.
Aug 19 - 9:55 AM

The Spurs have officially extended a qualifying offer to Aron Baynes, giving them the rights to match any offer he receives when free agency begins July 1.

Baynes is a big body at 6'10", but he's not exactly a hot commodity. Baynes per-36-minute numbers are decent at 11.8 points, and 10.6 rebounds, but his shooting leaves something to be desired at just 43.6 percent from the field. He was not a part of the rotation during the Spurs 2013-14 championship run.
Jun 29 - 1:09 PM

The Spurs praised Aron Baynes' performance during Tuesday's Game 1 victory, as Baynes came off the bench for 10 points and seven rebounds in 15 minutes of action.

Baynes logged six minutes during the entire first round of the playoffs, which made his energetic and physical play on Tuesday even more improbable. "We wanted another big just because we don’t want to end up overplaying Tiago and Boris and Timmy," said this season's Coach of the Year, Gregg Popovich. "It gives them a little bit of a break if we can get some minutes out of Aron. He fit better against [Portland] than he did against Dallas."
