    Not saying they had anything to do with each other but this coinciding with the Varejao needing surgery news, I wonder if the Spurs were interested in a trade and this was one of their back up plans.

    According to his agent, Baynes' performances have caught the eyes of several NBA general-managers. "There are two Western Conference teams closely following Aron"
    Good to know that the Spurs were (most likely) one of the 2 teams following Baynes

    I would like to salute this fine forum and its evaluation of talent!
    Seeing as the Spurs FO is undoubtedly the best in the biz for sizing up European players, the people involved in championing Baynes can legitimately feel pretty smug. Kudos to you all.

    Good, ace3g also deserves props for believing in him immediately and following him over these couple of months.

    I doubt he has the touch around the basket and scoring ability that Pekovic has.

    One negative I've seen from video of him, he is lazy (slow)/inaccurate with his passing.
    Why did this have to come back and bite me in his first game

    Another thing I had noticed in footage from overseas, was that while he is boxing out a guy near the FT line, he doesn't start to move toward the basket to look for the rebound, and it was something he did tonight as well.

    We should probably revisit your concerns in a month or two. Dude was star struck/nervous yesterday in very limited game action

    The kid definitely has some lift (can dunk easily) not sure on everything else though. Is he tall enough (can't tell if he is 6-10 or more like 6-8)? Looks like he avg around 8 and 4 in the Olympics. Trying to find more video on him.
    Easy to spot with his Boomers highlighter yellow shoes







    Well one thing is for sure, if he has even a little bit of space, he will dunk the ball

    Is he good to go against Brooklyn?
    Or was that injury in Detroit serious?

    San Antonio Spurs center Aaron Baynes informed that he will not play with Australia in FIBA Oceania Championships. Baynes suffered from an hamstring injury.

    Just curious- what is the tourney format in fiba oceania? There is only Australia and New Zealand playing. Does New Zealand even have a formidable team? Baynes may not be needed at all.

    Not really, both get through, its to help determine seedings. THere are other counties in Oceana, but seriously, they would be lucky to score let alone win.
