   2017 NBA Manifesto
2017-06-29

Aron Baynes
C, 6’10, 260lbs, 30 years old, 5 years of experience

Rebounding and usage rates went down, but still effective in his role - physical, aggressive, screener, fouler, occasional finisher. Baynes is annoying, which is a virtue, and while his inabilities to shoot, dribble or catch will keep him at the backup level, he is plenty solid in it. An important counter-punch to Drummond.

Player Plan: Has declined a player option for $6.5 million. If he were to re-sign at that price, having him and Marjanovic means spending a combined $13.5 million spent on back-up centre. Baynes fulfils an important role for a good price, but money is tight, so ought both stay?

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 6
2010-01-06

- Aron Baynes

Washington State graduate Baynes had a God awful summer league with the L.A. Lakers. In 57 minutes of 5 games, Baynes totalled 10 points, 14 rebounds, 22 fouls and 7 turnovers, while shooting 5-22 from the field and 0-2 from the foul line. Something went well, though, as he went on to join Lithuanian team Lietuvos Rytas. There's absolutely no money in Lithuanian basketball right now, and Lietuvos are no exception even after winning the Eurocup last season, but they're a Euroleague team this year so the exposure is self-evident.

However, the exposure is not helping; Baynes continues to struggle in his first professional season. In the Baltic league, he's averaging 11.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 17 mpg; in the Lithuanian league, he's averaging 10.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in 15 mpg; in the Euroleague, he's averaging 5.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 13mpg. In that respect, he's doing quite well. But his foul problem from summer league has carried over; he's averaging 3.1 fouls in 15 Lithuania league minutes per game, 3.3 fouls in 17 Baltic league minutes per game, and a whopping 4.1 fouls in 13 Euroleague minutes per game. All three of those competitions have 40 minute games and only 5 fouls before a foulout, and it's not a coincidence that the league with by far the highest standard of play is the one in which he does by far the worst. Baynes has fouled out 7 times this year in a total of 28 games; his minutes played in those games were 19, 10, 20, 15, 12, 13 and 6. And he's not Bubba Wellsing it up out there; he starts many games at centre, and Lietuvos rely on him as a big part of their rotation. But because of all the fouls, he can't deliver.

That's a lot of fouls. That's too many fouls. He needs to foul less. This is my analysis.

   How are players sent to the D-League this season progressing?
2013-12-23

San Antonio­ - Aron Baynes: All of one month older than N'Diaye, Baynes showed in his two games on assignment with the Austin Toros how much he has improved as a professional. He averaged 28 points, 9 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks per game, a defensive presence despite not having the ideal physical tools for the job, and an inside/outside offensive player. However, it has yet to translate to the NBA. Without the speed, maybe he is destined to be a cusper.
