Report: Aron Baynes agrees to two-year deal with the Toronto Raptors

Aron Baynes is heading north after reportedly agreeing to a two-year deal with the Toronto Raptors, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

The deal is reportedly worth $14.3 million, with the second year a team option.

Baynes is coming off a career year with the Phoenix Suns, averaging career-highs of 11.5 points and 5.6 rebounds in 22.1 minutes per game.

The 33-year-old continued to transform his game to become a reliable outside threat, connecting on 35% from the 3-point line on 4.0 attempts, including the best performance of his career, pouring in a career-high 37 points, 16 rebounds, and nine 3-pointers made against the Portland Trail Blazers just prior to the season shutdown in March.

With the Raptors losing Serge Ibaka to the LA Clippers and Marc Gasol to the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency, Baynes comes as a readymade replacement in the frontcourt.
