Gambadoro: Aron Baynes "coming to Phoenix to play"

It sounds like Aron Baynes could be staying in Arizona next season.

News on Baynes' trade to the Phoenix Suns broke a couple of days ago.

There was speculation that the Suns would buy him out, in order to allow the big man options on signing and contribute his defensive talents on a playoffs contender next season. Arizona radio host John Gambadoro however, made it clear Baynes would be playing with the Phoenix Suns.

Gambadoro also revealed that Phoenix was in competition with the Utah Jazz, the Sacramento Kings and the Detroit Pistons to acquire Baynes.

Baynes was a major contributor on the Boston Celtics, and shored up their front court defence along with All-Star Al Horford, who is reportedly leaving the Celtics in free agency as well.

He averaged 6 points, 5.4 rebounds during the 2017/18 season, and had reduced production in the last season (5.6 points, 4.7 rebounds) due to injuries.
