• Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes thrived during Deandre Ayton's absence at the start of the season, but was just a deep-league option once he returned, pegging his value as a top-190/189 per game player (8-cat/9-cat) overall.

    Baynes' value is tied directly to Ayton's in the end, and he is unlikely to do damage in the bubble as a result. As a starter, Baynes delivered 13.6 PTS, 6.7 REBS, 2.1 ASTS and 1.7 3PTS on .490 shooting from the field and .738 shooting from the line. In comparison off the bench, he only posted 7.1 PTS, 3.6 REBS, 0.6 ASTS and 0.8 3PTS on .448 shooting from the field and .786 shooting from the line. Injuries were an issue at points for Baynes as well, as he missed time with various ailments, including a right hip flexor, left calf strain, and a left hip strain. Baynes will enter free agency with a chance to change the situation but it's hard to imagine him receiving major minutes on many teams, which leaves him as a deep-league play who can make for a nice handcuff.
