Baynes was part of the Spurs side that collected the title last year, but with the center lingering as a free agent during the summer, some had expected the player to either move to Europe or Asia.
However, columnist Buck Harvey has tweeted news that the player is in San Antonio undergoing a physical:
For those keeping score, Aron Baynes in SA for physical, expected to sign. Meaning #spurs will return full roster to defend title.— Buck Harvey (@Buck_SA) September 25, 2014
The Spurs begin their defence of the title when the new season gets underway on October 28.
