As much as Boston Celtics faithful politicked for it, Aaron Baynes will not be returning to the team next season.
He is coming back to the Eastern Conference, though.
The fan-favorite center, hailing from Australia and spending the last season with the Phoenix Suns, reportedly has signed with the Toronto Raptors.
Baynes has agreed to terms of a two-year, $14.3 million deal with the 2019 NBA Champions, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
The Raptors acquire him just one day after re-signing Fred VanVleet to a four-year deal and losing Serge Ibaka in free agency to the Los Angeles Clippers.
