According to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe, Jayson Tatum (Rookie of the Year), Kyrie Irving (Play of the Year), and Brad Stevens (Coach of the Year) will not attend Monday’s NBA Awards. Aron Baynes will represent the team and accept any awards on their behalf.

As Himmelsbach pointed out, this would hint at Baynes expecting to remain with the Celtics for the 2018-19 season. This comes just over 12 hours after CelticsBlog’s Keith Smith reported that Boston intends to bring Baynes back for next season.

We’ll continue to follow any Baynes updates as the offseason rolls on.
