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.

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.

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."

Aron Baynes (ribs) returned to action on Friday in a four-minute stint.

Baynes could theoretically get some run if Pop starts Popping people left and right, but there's no way he should be on fantasy rosters.
Apr 12 - 2:27 AM

Aron Baynes (non-displaced rib fracture) will not play against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

For a man his size, it's surprising to see him even break a rib. Baynes has been a beast in the paint for the Spurs and looked great over the summer, but he has plenty of learning to do in the NBA and is years away from fantasy value.
Apr 6 - 6:00 PM

Aron Baynes (rib) will not play against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He cracked a rib over the weekend and this will be his second consecutive game out of the lineup. After an impressive Summer League, Baynes hasn't really done much in his time with the Spurs this year.
Apr 2 - 3:57 PM

Aron Baynes (cracked rib) will not play vs. Indiana on Monday.

He must have hurt himself during Saturday's game, or at practice on Sunday, but his absence won't have an appreciable effect on fantasy lineups since he's averaging just nine minutes per game in March. We'll consider him day-to-day until the Spurs provide a timetable.
Mar 31 - 12:22 PM

Updating a previous item, Aron Baynes is playing against the Suns on Friday.

He wasn't expected to play and the Spurs may have changed their minds on him. Baynes still has no fantasy value.
Feb 21 - 10:55 PM

Aron Baynes (knee) will not play against the Suns on Friday night.

It will be his second consecutive game out of the lineup and the team probably won't need him with Tiago Splitter back and looking good. Baynes can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.

Aron Baynes (knee) will not play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

His knee contusion must really be bothering him to not play in a game with Tim Duncan sitting out. Jeff Ayres figures to backup Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw tonight.
Feb 19 - 9:08 PM

Aron Baynes made his second start of the season on Monday with four points, six boards and two turnovers against the Pistons.

He likely was in the starting lineup in an effort to combat Andre Drummond's size, but he didn't really have it tonight. While Baynes was able to push guys around in Las Vegas Summer League, he's not having such luck with the big boys. He's not really worth owning in almost any league.
Feb 10 - 10:31 PM

Aron Baynes will start against the Pistons on Monday night.

Of course he will. Coach Gregg Popovich has started some of the wildest lineups of all this year -- like Marco Belinelli at power forward -- and Baynes will make his second start of the season. In his first start he only played nine minutes, so there's little reason to get excited about this.
Feb 10 - 7:36 PM

Aron Baynes came off the bench for nine points and eight rebounds on 4-of-8 shooting in 17 minutes on Saturday.

The eight boards were a season high and while his play tonight was encouraging, it's hard to imagine him doing much on most nights. He is kind of hot right now though, averaging 11.5 points and 7.0 rebounds over his last two games, so owners in extremely deep leagues might want to take notice.

Aron Baynes (leg) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Jazz.

He has a strain in his lower leg and it's unclear how many minutes he will see tonight. Baynes might be a DNP-CD (coach's decision) or he could build off his 14-point game from Tuesday. He's still not worth owning in almost any league.
