After acquiring the 24th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft from the Philadelphia 76ers for the 20th overall pick, Matisse Thybulle, the Celtics traded Aron Baynes and the pick, Ty Jerome, to the Phoenix Suns.

In exchange for Baynes and Jerome, Boston acquired the Milwaukee Bucks' first-round pick in the 2020 draft from the Suns.

Additionally, the Celtics freed up $5.4 million in cap space by moving Baynes.

The Athletic's Shams Charania was the first to report Baynes being traded.
