Woj: Celtics have put Aron Baynes $5.4 million expiring contract up for grabs
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Boston Celtics have offered Aron Baynes $5.4 million expiring deal in an effort to increase cap space. Baynes recently exercised his player option for the 2019-20 season, and now that contract is being shopped.
Boston has offered center Aron Baynes -- $5.4M expiring contract -- into salary cap space elsewhere, league sources tell ESPN. Without Kyrie Irving and Al Horford on the books, moving Baynes without taking back salary could get the Celtics to $23M in space.
The Celtics are reportedly looking for a talented center to replace the potentially-departing Al Horford. Nikola Vucevic and Clint Capela have been two names mentioned, and Oklahoma City has suggested that Steven Adams may be available.
