Aaron Baynes traded to the Phoenix Suns

Aaron Baynes was acquired by the Suns as part of the Ty Jerome trade, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Impact

Baynes played a key role off the bench for the Celtics the past two seasons. He averaged 5.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 51 games for the Celtics last season. Baynes could see more minutes for the Suns, but his fantasy upside is limited.

Aron Baynes on trading block for salary dump

The Boston Celtics have made Aron Baynes and his $5.4M salary available for trade in an effort to clear cap space.

Fantasy Impact

Baynes reportedly opted into the final year of his deal with the understanding that he would not be traded this summer, but the move isn’t surprising from a financial standpoint. If Boston is able to trade Baynes without taking on a new salary, it can free up $23M in an effort to offer a big contract to a free agent. With Kyrie Irving and Al Horford likely gone in the offseason, Boston is in need of a splash signing. The Celtics could also forgo free agency and explore packaging Baynes, other players, and draft picks for a quality option - perhaps Bradley Beal or Steven Adams. Boston owns picks 14, 20, and 22 in the first round of this year’s draft.

Aaron Baynes does little in starting role

Aaron Baynes scored two points on 1-of-1 shooting, with two rebounds, one steal, and one turnover in 18 minutes in Sunday's Game 4 110-106 win over the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact

Baynes did very little in a starting role in Sunday's win over the Pacers. He is not a primary option on offense, and is a considered a desperation play in DFS for the next NBA playoff slate.

Aron Baynes gets the start on Tuesday versus the Cavs

Aron Baynes scored four points on 2-for-2 shooting with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 24 minutes as the Celtics defeated the Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact

Baynes got the start as the Celtics went big against the Cavaliers. The veteran big man played his second game after missing a contest due to a sprained ankle. The injury was not serious and Baynes should be good to go to finish out the season.

Aron Baynes sprains ankle in loss on Wednesday

Aron Baynes was diagnosed with a grade-2 left ankle sprain after leaving Wednesday's game against Philadelphia early, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

Fantasy Impact

Baynes has had some tough luck with injuries this season and this ankle injury could keep him out for 4-6 weeks. There has not been an official timetable released but fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.
