The Chicago Bulls could sign Aron Baynes for front court depth

We are kind of rolling with a similar theme here with these guys. All three are a little older, yet they are guys who don’t mind getting physical. Aron Baynes is no different.

At 34 years old, Baynes is just a season removed from his best one as a pro. Over the course of the 2019-2020 season with the Phoenix Suns, Baynes started 28 of 42 games played and averaged 11.5 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists.

Baynes functions mostly as a true center, so he would be directly behind Vucevic. Out of all three of these free agents, Baynes has the most starting experience. During the 2017-2018 season, Baynes was the starting center for the Boston Celtics. Since that year, he has started at least 18 games in each season.

There is one kicker when it comes to Baynes, though: he suffered a neck injury a month ago and could miss a large portion of this coming season. If the Bulls were to entertain signing Baynes, it would mean that they are comfortable with their depth at the moment. But, having Baynes for a playoff run would be ideal, as he does have plenty of experience in the postseason dating back to his days with Boston.
