    Would love to have him as a backup next season if that’s really what he wants to do.

    All good. More people that can read it the better. I wondered what happened to him.

    yeah....you'd think they'd explain what the medical issue was. Maybe they still don't know?

    As a Wazzu alum, I've always loved watching Baynes and his tough nosed style on the court. Dude is a beast and hope he gets back on the court soon!

    We've built quite a good women's soccer program in the past few years, the lil HCP should be begging for them to take a look at her! Also one of the top broadcasting programs in the country!

    Aron had a really difficult season with the Raps last year. He started the first 25-games or so but could never get into rhythm on either end of the court. I don't think he blocked a shot in the first month and his three point shooting went to shit. By March he was hardly playing, having lost his spot in the starting lineup to Chris Boucher. In April Nurse stopped using him altogether. The fans virtually demanded that the Raps not pick up his second year player option. He's gonna be 36 next season having not played in the NBA for two years. I hope he gets on somewhere and does well because he is a lovely guy but I think his NBA days are done.

    Yeah I tend to think the same. Wish well for the guy but I probably wouldn't want my team to use a roster spot on him.
