Aron Baynes is Phoenix-bound

It looks like Aron Baynes isn't going to a contender after all.

According to ESPN's Zach Lowe, Baynes will be moved to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for the Milwaukee Bucks' 2020 first-round pick, who obtained it in a transaction involving guard Eric Bledsoe.

The Suns will also be getting Ty Jerome, who was selected by the Boston Celtics (via the Philadelphia 76ers at 24th) in the 2019 NBA draft.

As discussed earlier, Baynes is likely being moved in an effort to shed salary.

Earlier today, Fox Sports Australia's Olgun Uluc confirmed this is a team decision - Baynes had in no way indicated he was on board with being traded.

Update: Keith Smith has mentioned that the Suns could potentially be open to a buyout, that will allow Baynes to join a contender.
