The big man is staying in Boston.
It's not every day that you get to roster a gigantic Kiwi with a man-bun, but then again, not everyone is the Celtics. So, when it came time to reckon with Aron Baynes' free agency, Danny Ainge and Co. wasted absolutely zero time. Not content to let him fall victim to his own wandering eyes, Boston is reportedly bringing back Baynes on a two-year contract worth $11 million.

The NBA can be a chaotic place. And the C's are winning their offseason so far by keeping things simple. Tidy. Pragmatic.
And for the record, the man himself is very much on the same page with the overall plan.
