Aron Baynes started against the Blazers on Monday with 15 points, nine rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.
He looks more comfortable in his second full season. Baynes had to guard LaMarcus Aldridge for much of this game and he kept him in check on post-ups. Baynes should be a sneaky play on the nights Tim Duncan sits. Dec 16 - 2:39 AM

Aron Baynes will start on Monday against the Blazers.

Baynes gets the nod and could be a sneaky daily option, but there's not exactly a big body of work to support that statement. The Spurs will be without their Big Three and Tiago Splitter, so somebody has got to get the stats.
Dec 15 - 9:01 PM

Aron Baynes started out fast in a start against the 76ers on Monday, finishing with 15 points, nine rebounds and one steal in 29 minutes.

He put up a double-double the last time Tim Duncan received a DNP-OLD on Nov. 5 and he put up another gem. Baynes is getting much better as an offensive guy and his jumper is coming around. When Duncan sits again, he'll be a solid plug-and-play in deep leagues and an option in daily.
Dec 1 - 10:22 PM

Aron Baynes will start in place of Tim Duncan on Monday vs. the Sixers.

He'll join Cory Joseph, Danny Green, Boris Diaw and Kawhi Leonard in the first unit. Baynes is known most for being such a big body, and he's played just 16.4 minutes per game. Although, he did play 31 minutes on Nov. 6 the last time Duncan sat and had a double-double.
Dec 1 - 6:26 PM

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.
