San Antonio Spurs Season Review: Aron Baynes

By George Middleton

Aron Baynes only played 16 minutes a game this season, but he was at times terrific for the Spurs. Baynes doubled his production from 2013-14, when he averaged 3 points and 2.7 rebounds. Unfortunately Baynes had a minuscule role in the playoffs, as he didn’t even play in three games.  What did Aron Baynes do right and wrong this year? Find out below!

B. Aron Baynes had a career year, as he averaged 6.6 points on 57% field goals. Baynes would’ve finished third in the league in field goal percentage had he been qualified. Baynes was also impressive from the free-throw stripe, as he finished 87%. The negative is that Baynes finished with 65 turnovers and only 35 assists. His season high was 18 points and he did it in back-to-back games against Denver and Orlando.. C/PF. Offense. ARON BAYNES

Defense. ARON BAYNES. C. If there is an area where Baynes can look for improvement it can be defense. However Baynes can defend the center position and power forward spot. Baynes averaged 4.5 rebounds in only 16 minutes. He must improve on his shot blocking, as he is only averaging 0.3 blocks. If Baynes improves in rim protecting he will be a big asset for the Spurs in the future.. C/PF

C+. Baynes had a nice season for the Spurs on a per minute basis. On a per 36 minute basis, he averaged 14.8 points and 10.2 rebounds. I expect Baynes to improve his defense over the summer, which will make him an intriguing bench player.. C/PF. Overall. ARON BAYNES

Below is a Aron Baynes video uploaded by DownToBuck. The video is of Baynes highest scoring output of the season (18 points) against the Denver Nuggets.
