Other item of note from Australian national team: Spurs F-C Aron Baynes (hamstring) will not play in FIBA Oceania Championships.

Well, add San Antonio Spurs' Aron Baynes to the list of players with nagging injuries this summer.
Aside from Tony Parker (who had small pain in his thigh), Baynes is banged up but the good thing is he will not play at all for Australia. Seeing him pick rest over rushing to play at the Oceania tournament should bring a smile to Spurs fans and a sigh of relief to the team coaching staff.
Now if only Parker can sit out Team France play, that would be great.
