Aron Baynes

There will be an NBA workout in Las Vegas on Friday for Aron Baynes, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, the network’s basketball analyst.

The spinal cord injury that rendered Baynes unable to walk for two months occurred in July of last year. He has been making progress since then.

According to that allegation, during the fourth quarter of Australia’s Olympic game against Italy last summer, Baynes stumbled in the locker room and was knocked unconscious. Hospital scans showed internal bleeding, which put pressure on his spine after he fell, leaving him unable to walk.

Windhorst reported in January that Baynes had described his time in the hospital as “the loneliest time of my life,” at which time he went over his life plan and goals while crying. “In the year 2000, my uncle Don suffered an accident. He’s paralyzed from the waist down due to an injury. This is something that my family has seen firsthand. I was terrified.”

By the end of January, he was back in limited basketball activities and is currently trying to get back to full participation. According to his agent Daniel Moldovan, it is an “amazing turnaround” and “a monument to all the hard effort” he has put in.

The Toronto Raptors used Baynes in the 2020-21 NBA season, where he averaged 6.1 points and 5.2 rebounds per game (31 starts).

A nine-year NBA veteran who has played for the San Antonio Spurs, Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns, and Toronto Raptors have averaged six points per game while shooting 48.9 percent from the field and 30.8 percentage points from beyond the arc in his career.

For most of his career, Baynes was known for his tough defense and rebounding, as well as his ability to shoot from long range, albeit to varying degrees of success. He might be a viable option for teams in need of senior leadership at the center.
