Baynes has been on the road to recovery ever since he tragically bruised his spinal cord that left him temporarily paralyzed. He held a workout for NBA teams during the Las Vegas Summer League, but found no takers. However, Baynes' contract with the Bullets has an opt out in case an NBA team wants to add him, which is Baynes' ultimate goal, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.
Aron Baynes will resume his basketball career in a new deal with the Brisbane Bullets of the NBL, @AgentMoldovan tells ESPN.
