WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) Aron Baynes and Marcus Morris are happy to be coming to Boston at the same time, if only so they don't have to play against each other.
Baynes signed with the Celtics as a free agent on Wednesday, and he already has a familiar face in the team's locker room: Morris, who was acquired in a trade for Avery Bradley on July 7. Baynes said Morris "brings a lot of toughness" to the court, and Celtics assistant general manager Mike Zarren said the 6-foot-10 Australian can do the same.
"Red Auerbach said, `Get the instigators, not the retaliators,'" Zarren said before introducing Baynes to the media. "He's definitely an instigator."
