3c94be7fef1ea9ff3218d8ecbe7217ee

The Celtics didn't collect any accolates at the NBA Awards Show on Monday night in Los Angeles, but there was a far more important takeaway from the festivities. It was the presence of Aron Baynes in the audience representing the Celtics, which is not common for a player about to hit free agency after having played with a team for just one season. Baynes representing the Celtics at the awards show is another sign of the connection he made with the franchise in just one season.

Ben Simmons set his sights on more honours after being named NBA Rookie of the Year and wants the Philadelphia 76ers to add "a big free agent" to their roster for next season. Simmons missed the 2016-17 campaign due to a foot injury, but the Australia star made up for lost time by averaging 15.8 points, 8.1 rebounds and 8.2 assists in his rookie campaign. The 76ers have been linked with the legendary LeBron James as they attempt to make further strides after being denied a place in the Eastern Conference Finals by the Boston Celtics.
