The Spurs again have gone the international route to restock their roster.
According to multiple reports, the Spurs are close to signing a multiyear deal with Australian center Aron Baynes. The Spurs reportedly bought out his contract for $400,000.
Baynes, 26, currently plays for Union Olimpija Ljubljana in the Euroleague and averaged 13.8 points and 9.8 rebounds, establishing himself as maybe the best big man in Europe. He's a seven-footer, and known for his tough, physical style.
Draft Express reports the deal is for $3.5 million over four years, with the last two years being team options.
Baynes played collegiate basketball at Washington State.
