Aron Baynes is expected to leave the Phoenix Suns once free agency opens this Friday, November 20.

Baynes is an unrestricted free agent, as his contract with Phoenix expired, and it seems he has no plans to re-sign with the Suns.

Baynes averaged 11.5 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 assistsĀ for the Suns last season, while he earned $5.5M.

If Baynes leaves Phoenix, then the team is interested in Jalen Smith being his replacement, per Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer.
