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.
The Spurs currently have only 14 players under contract, including six who are international players.
