Wojnarowski: Aron Baynes could be moved to free cap space

It sounds like Aron Baynes might not be in Boston for long.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, there's a chance Baynes could be moved.


The decision is likely one centred around freeing cap space up cap. Kyrie Irving's imminent departure has made it clear, that the Celtics will not be contending for a championship in the immediate future.

The Celtics were committed to re-negotiating All-Star big man Al Horford's new contract, but both parties apparently could not come to an agreement. Boston is now moving into a younger timeline that will likely be focused around Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

It also makes sense from Baynes' perspective - he would be able to go to a contending team and be part of another potential championship run.
