Bismack Biyombo is "coming to Orlando to start" for the Magic next season, according to Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press.

Krawczynski broke the Biyombo agreement, so this report isn't to be taken lightly. The Magic certainly paid Biyombo a starter's salary at $72 million over four years with coach Frank Vogel likely having a say -- Biyombo destroyed his Pacers in the playoffs. The Magic will have two of the NBA's best shot-blockers, so making shots disappear will be their specialty. If the Magic do indeed try to trade Nikola Vucevic, Biyombo has a great chance to be a top-five shot blocker and a top-10 rebounder in his age-24 season.

Unrestricted free agent Bismack Biyombo agreed to terms with the Magic on a four-year deal.

The deal is expected to be for around $70 million, and the Magic are using their cap space. When on the court together, Biyombo and Serge Ibaka become one of the most potent shot-blocking frontcourts in the NBA, but this shouldn't hurt Nikola Vucevic's minutes -- he could be on the trade block, though. Biyombo should be in a similar role as he was during the playoffs with this not being a great landing spot for his fantasy value.

The Knicks are reportedly interested in Bismack Biyombo if they are unable to sign Joakim Noah.

The Knicks are reportedly the front-runners to land Noah, but Biyombo is thought to be the Knicks Plan B if they are unable to land the former Defensive Player of the year. Biyombo's breakout playoff performance will be tantalizing for fantasy owners, but we'll have to wait and see where he lands before assessing his fantasy value for 2016-17.

Bismack Biyombo wants to re-sign with the Raptors, a source told USA Today's Sam Amick.

According to Amick, Biyombo is willing to be patient while Toronto figures things out with DeMar DeRozan, the team's top priority in free agency. However, it's one thing to take that stance now, and it's entirely another when interested clubs are throwing as much as $15-$17M annually in your face. If DeRozan is willing to take a slight discount, it could greatly help in allowing for Biyombo's Toronto return. We'll soon learn how it will all play out.

Bismack Biyombo will be suspended for the 2016-17 season opener.

The league upheld his flagrant foul on Kevin Love in Game 6, meaning he accumulated enough flagrant foul points to warrant a suspension. Biyombo is set to hit free agency this summer, and while he has said that he would like to return to Toronto, they may not be able to compete with opposing offers as some teams are reportedly willing to give him at least $15 million per year.

Bismack Biyombo is reportedly open to taking a hometown discount to re-sign with the Raptors.

Bismack told Andrew Walker of Sportsnet 590 that he wants to be back with the Raptors and is willing to take a hometown discount in order to do so. Biyombo will likely receive some hefty offers after a strong postseason showing, so he could have a tough decision to make if Toronto won't match. Where Biyombo signs will have a big impact on his fantasy value, but the arrow is pointing up for the 24-year-old in 2016-17.

Raptors GM Masai Ujiri hinted that re-signing Bismack Biyombo could be a difficult proposition.

"We want to bring them back," Ujiri said of Biyombo and DeMar DeRozan. "Sometimes those things are difficult or challenging." While the Raptors have a very strong chance to re-sign DeRozan, retaining Biyombo—who broke out on a national stage in the playoffs and should receive offers in free agency upwards of $10 million annually—could prove to be quite the task.
May 30 - 11:31 AM

Bismack Biyombo said that he doesn't necessarily need to land a starting job this summer.

"It’s not as big as it sounds, really," Biyombo said. "I just want to win and obviously here the opportunity that was given to me was to win. For me it’s about winning. Starting or not starting, it doesn’t matter. I know I can start but with that being said it’s not the most important thing to me." Biyombo will opt out of his $2.94 million player option and become a free agent this summer, but it sounds like he's very open to the idea of returning to Toronto. He would be stuck behind Jonas Valanciunas in that case, so a move away from Toronto would be much better for his fantasy value.
May 29 - 10:42 AM

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Bismack Biyombo will decline his $2.9 million player option for the 2016-17 season.

This will make him an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Biyombo's stock has grown significantly during the postseason and Stein is hearing that he will make at least $15 million per year. The Raptors will likely offer DeMar DeRozan a max deal this summer, so this would mean that they won't be able to retain Biyombo and it's also worth noting that they already have Jonas Valanciunas under contract for several more years. If Biyombo lands a starting job this summer, his fantasy value would get a significant boost.
May 28 - 9:31 AM

Bismack Biyombo scored four points with nine rebounds, one steal, one block and one turnover in 26 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

On top of being eliminated, Biyombo will be suspended to start next season for his elbow to Kevin Love. The contact was very hard and clear, so it almost certainly won't be rescinded. Perhaps no player made more money for this offseason than Biyombo in these playoffs with teams likely looking to give him a huge, multi-year deal. If he gets a starting job, the 23-year-old will have some fantasy appeal.
May 27 - 11:22 PM

Bismack Biyombo could make up to $17 million per year as an unrestricted free agent this summer, according to an unnamed general manager.

While Biyombo may not fetch a max contract, his play in the Eastern Conference Finals has him poised for a huge pay day as an unrestricted free agent this summer. "For someone like [Biyombo], I think when you look at a guy like Tyson Chandler and what he got from Phoenix last summer [four years, $52 million], that’s where you start for a contract," one Eastern Conference GM told Sporting News. "But you factor in the cap spike and it’s probably going to be high, I’d say, $16-17 million. It’ll be a heck of a $17 million-per-year gamble." While Biyombo can be an inconsistent player, he is still just 23 years old and will be an interesting fantasy target if he lands in a starting role in 2016-17.

Bismack Biyombo started Game 5 but posted only seven points, four boards and one block in 21 minutes during Toronto's 38-point road loss.

In the wake of tonight's drubbing in Cleveland, it will be interesting to see if Dwane Casey opts to start Biyombo over Jonas Valanciunas for Game 6. Tonight's struggles come in the wake of a terrific stretch for Biyombo, who has raised his stock significantly. An unnamed Eastern Conference GM, citing the upcoming salary-cap increase, even suggested that Biyombo will be offered around $17 million per year as a free agent this summer. Considering the Raptors' long-term investment in Jonas Valanciunas, it could be very hard for them to retain Biyombo.
May 25 - 11:24 PM

Bismack Biyombo will start Game 5 on Wednesday despite the return of Jonas Valanciunas (ankle).

"[Jonas Valanciunas] is our starting center but we've got to respect what Bismack is doing on the court," said Dwane Casey. Biyombo is averaging 6.8 points on 61.1 percent shooting, 12.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in four Conference finals games vs. Cleveland, though his minutes are likely to come down with Valanciunas in the rotation.
May 25 - 7:58 PM

The Raptors could struggle to retain Bismack Biyombo as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Toronto signed Biyombo for cheap this past offseason, but with how well Biyombo has played during this postseason he's most assuredly earned himself a massive payday when he decides to opt out of his contract this summer. Biyombo will likely be able to secure a $10-15 million deal as a free agent, so the Raptors will need to move around some pieces if they hope to retain him. From a fantasy perspective, a move away from Toronto into a starting role elsewhere would put Biz firmly on the standard league radar.
