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.

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.
