Maybe American cash translates a funny way into New Zealand currency. Baynes turned down the $6.5 million player option in his Detroit Piston contract to hit free agency, eventually settling on a $4.3 million one-year agreement with Boston. While the pay cut might sting, Bay...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

As was the case in San Antonio, Baynes occupied the primary backup center role in Detroit after signing a three-year, $20 million contract with the team last summer. While starter Andre Drummond dominated the playing time at the position and was generally able to stay healthy this season, Baynes performed effectively in his 15.2 minutes per game over 81 appearances, churning out averages of 6.3 points (on 50.5% shooting) and 4.7 boards. Unlike Drummond, Baynes excels at the charity stripe, where his career 80.1 mark makes him a great alternative when opposing teams choose to play 'Hack-a-Drummond.' Though the Pistons brought in another former San Antonio center in Boban Marjanovic this offseason, he's more of an insurance policy and may not claim the top backup job until next summer, when Baynes will become a free agent and figures to sign elsewhere. Baynes' fantasy upside remains limited given Drummond's fairly pristine record on the health front, but he'll provide the Pistons with some real value whenever he's on the floor.

2015-16

Baynes played his first three seasons in the NBA with the Spurs but opted to sign a three-year deal with the Pistons this summer. Through 70 games last season, he averaged 6.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.2 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 16 minutes per game while shooting 57 percent from the field and 87 percent from the line. With Greg Monroe leaving the Pistons to sign with the Bucks this summer, the Pistons needed to secure a competent big man who could serve as a nice backup for Andre Drummond. In signing Baynes, coach Stan Van Gundy insulated the team from having a poor backup center by getting a player who has experience playing on a championship team. Baynes' stellar free-throw shooting is also a great compliment to Drummond's lackthereof. If a team wants to do hack-a-Shaq on Drummond, Van Gundy can put Baynes in the game with his 87 percent free-throw shooting and force the opposition into playing the uptempo game the Pistons want to play. If Drummond goes down with an injury at some point this season, Baynes could have standard league value, but as he's expected to be a backup all season, there's no reason to draft him in anything but the deepest of leagues. Baynes underwent a minor ankle procedure this offseason that he's still working his way back from, but the reports seem to point toward him being healthy going into training camp at the end of September.

2014-15

Aron Baynes completed his first full NBA season in 2013-14 after signing with the Spurs following the end of the Australian professional season in January of 2013. Last season, he averaged 3.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, 0.6 assists, and 0.1 blocks in nine minutes per game through 53 games. He shot 44 percent from the field on 3.1 attempts per game and 91 percent from the line on 0.4 attempts per game. Baynes is currently a restricted free agent, with the Spurs holding rights of first refusal on any offer sheet Baynes receives from another team after they extended him a qualifying offer in June. He has yet to receive an offer and is reportedly weighing his options with teams in Europe, making his future in the NBA unclear. Baynes played for the Spurs' Las Vegas Summer League team, averaging 12.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 0.3 assists, 0.3 steals, and 1.3 blocks in 26 minutes per game through four games. If he decides to re-sign with the Spurs, Baynes will play behind Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter and compete with Jeff Ayres for the remaining minutes at center. For him to get big minutes, something catastrophic would have to happen in San Antonio, so for now, Baynes is only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

2013-14

Although a regular on the Australian national team, at 26, Baynes has yet to clock significant NBA minutes, serving as bench fodder behind Splitter in eight minutes per contest over 16 games during the 2012-2013 campaign. Baynes is fully recovered from a hamstring injury suffered in FIBA tournament action over the summer, but again figures to be buried on the depth chart barring a significant frontcourt injury.
