Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri showered praised on Bismack Biyombo and said that he will continue to get better.
"You want guys who love the game and Bismack loves the game," Ujiri said. "He’s one of those guys that is a basketball junkie and I think he’s going to continue to get better and better. He’s trying to figure it out in many ways, what his role and his specialty can be in the NBA, but what he does well now is offensive rebounding. He’s elite, blocking shots, offensive rebounding he’s elite." Biyombo will have a fresh start in Toronto after being buried on the bench in Charlotte for most of last season, but he isn't likely to make a big impact in fantasy leagues while Jonas Valanciunas is healthy. On a side note, Biyombo has spent some time working out with Hakeem Olajuwon in Africa, so hopefully he picks up a few things from him. Jul 31 - 10:25 AM

The Raptors signed Bismack Biyombo to a multi-year deal on Saturday.

The Raptors had a strong summer after also adding Cory Joseph and DeMarre Carroll, and they now have a solid rim protector that they can bring off the bench behind Jonas Valanciunas. Raptors head coach Dwane Casey benched Valanciunas late in games on several occasions last season due to his inability to react on defense, so it will be interesting to see if Biyombo steals some additional minutes in the frontcourt. For now, Biyombo is only worth a look in deeper leagues as a blocks specialist.

The Raptors signed Bismack Biyombo with their mini midlevel exception.

Toronto was able to agree to terms with both DeMarre Carroll and Cory Joseph with their cap space while adding Biyombo with the exception. A capable rim protector who averaged 1.8 blocks over 21 games as a starter (27 minutes/game), Biyombo should prove to be a shrewd signing for GM Masai Ujiri and Co.
Jul 6 - 8:59 AM

Bismack Biyombo has agreed to sign a two-year, $6 million deal with the Raptors.

It's a great value for the Raptors, as they now have a solid rim protector that they can bring off the bench behind Jonas Valanciunas. Biyombo never really made a significant impact in Charlotte, but he really stepped up and showed some nice flashes when Al Jefferson injured his knee towards the end of last season. Biyombo is still raw on offense which will limit his upside, but he can be viewed as a blocks specialist in deeper fantasy leagues next season.
Jul 4 - 1:40 PM

The Hornets will not tender a qualifying offer to Bismack Biyombo and he is now an unrestricted free agent.

The Hornets are really changing their team this summer. Noah Vonleh is with the Blazers, they added Nicolas Batum, and they think the world of Frank Kaminsky. Bismack actually came around on offense a bit last season, but that's not saying much because he was awful on that end before the 2014-15 season. Expect him to wind up on another team as a backup.

General manager Rich Cho said he hasn't made a decision on a qualifying offer for Bismack Biyombo.

Usually, it's a no-brainer decision to extend a qualifying offer for anyone worthy of being on a roster. However, the Hornets now have guaranteed money on Al Jefferson, Spencer Hawes, Cody Zeller, Marvin Williams and Frank Kaminsky at their power forward and center spots. It's tough to figure out what they're doing.
Jun 26 - 4:04 PM

Hornets general manager Rich Cho said that he still hasn't decided whether or not to extend a qualifying offer to Bismack Biyombo.

The Hornets can make Biyombo a restricted free agent if he accepts a qualifying offer of $5.2 million, but Cho said that he is still evaluating the situation. Biyombo is a solid shot-blocker and rebounder, but he will have a difficult time finding minutes with Al Jefferson in the fold and Spencer Hawes coming into town. Cho did say that Biyombo is just 22 years old and that his best years are ahead of him, so it would be a little surprising if the Hornets don't retain him.
Jun 18 - 11:32 AM

Bismack Biyombo was quiet on Sunday, scoring five points with four rebounds and one block in 29 minutes of action.

Biyombo committed four fouls but he was mostly held in check by the lopsided score due to Charlotte's ineptitude, as they shot 34.2 percent from the field and were out-rebounded 33-56. The Hornets can give Biyombo a $5.2 million qualifying offer this summer and his role should be iron-clad with two games remaining vs. the Rockets and Raptors.
Apr 12 - 6:20 PM

Bismack Biyombo played 30 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday with six points, seven rebounds and three blocks.

He's not going to light it up on offense, so his fantasy owners should be pleased with this line with three blocks and 2-of-2 from the line. Biyombo should get minutes in the mid 30s going forward, making him worth a look for any owner seeking some blocks.
Apr 8 - 9:42 PM

Bismack Biyombo (broken nose) finished Tuesday's crushing loss in Miami with 12 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and four blocks in a team-high 41 minutes of action.

He broke his nose on Saturday but wasn't even wearing a protective mask tonight, as he made another fill-in start at center for Al Jefferson (knee). Big Al has already been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors, making Biyombo an excellent target for help with rebounds, blocks and FG percentage.
Apr 7 - 10:24 PM

Bismarck Biyombo (nose) will play against the Heat on Tuesday.

Bizzy B took part in shootaround on Tuesday and will give it a go despite his broken nose. With Al Jefferson's status up in the air due to various injuries, Biyombo could be worth a spot-start if Big Al sits on Tuesday's game against the Heat.
Apr 7 - 11:17 AM

Bismack Biyombo (nose) has been fitted for a protective mask, and he's expected to play on Tuesday against the Heat.

In what is shaping up as a likely elimination game between the two teams in the "heated" race for the Eastern Conference's No. 8 seed, Biyombo could very well be the starting center should Al Jefferson (knee, groin, body) be out again. In three April games, Biz is averaging 9.0 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.7 blocks on 57.1 percent shooting.
Apr 6 - 12:17 PM

Bismack Biyombo suffered a broken nose during Saturday's game vs. the 76ers, and he is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

Biyombo drew the start on Saturday with Al Jefferson (knee) on the shelf, so it would be a shame if he were forced to miss any action. Biyombo finished with nine points, nine boards and three blocks in 32 minutes, and with the Hornets considering shutting down Big Al, Biyombo is worth a look in most leagues. If Biyombo is unable to play Tuesday, Noah Vonleh and Jason Maxiell would have to step up for the Hornets.

Bismack Biyombo will start for Al Jefferson (knee) on Saturday.

This isn't a surprise and he should be backed up by Jason Maxiell. Considering the Hornets are going to have to re-work their offensive scheme, we might see more offensive plays go to Biyombo. He should also have a very nice rebounding rate, making him a good bet for a double-double.
Apr 4 - 6:02 PM

Bismack Biyombo logged 24 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring 10 points on 3-of-6 shooting with nine rebounds and three blocks.

Biyombo hit 4-of-7 shots from the foul line and this is probably a pretty good representation of what to expect on a relatively good night if Al Jefferson gets shut down, which was reported to be a possibility after the game.
