As Project Spurs reported, Aron Baynes is heading to join the San Antonio Spurs. With new information from the DailyTelegraph.com.au, it appears the signing is all but official. His team, Union Olimpija, has wished him well in his new endeavors:
Thank you for everything and good luck – @aronbaynes! (@Union Olimpijia)
The site is also reporting about the contract San Antonio has reportedly offered him:
According to the reports, the 2.08m-tall centre has been offered a $3.5 million contract over four years.
If this is true, the Spurs struck gold with Baynes. He has the reputation of being the best big man in Europe and with the Spurs having limited money to offer, this is a great deal for the team's immediate future. With a long term deal, this will help the organization create a team with a mix of veterans and youth on a mission to win another championship.
