Baynes to join Celtics

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

AUS­TRALIA’S pres­ence in the NBA play­offs is set to grow, with Aron Baynes un­der­stood to be on the verge of join­ing Bos­ton.

Baynes will join last sea­son’s Eastern Con­fer­ence fi­nal­ists af­ter two years in Detroit, ac­cord­ing to mul­ti­ple US re­ports.

The 208cm- bench cen­tre for the Pis­tons who also played for the San An­to­nio Spurs, where he won the 2014 cham­pi­onship, in­di­cated his move on Sun­day. “Does any­body know if there’s good BBQ in Bos­ton? Ask­ing for a friend,” he tweeted.

Baynes, 30, de­cided to walk away from the $ US6.5 mil­lion ($ A8.6 mil­lion) player op­tion he had with Detroit, be­com­ing an un­re­stricted free agent and test­ing the NBA mar­ket.
