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.

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.

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.
Apr 3 - 10:47 PM

Bismack Biyombo played 31 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday with nine points, 11 rebounds and three blocks.

Al Jefferson was spent after the first half and Biyombo picked up the slack. Jefferson wasn't really injured tonight and we'd guess he was just dealing with some soreness. Plus, Biyombo doesn't really have much upside to begin with, so he's not a great add.
Mar 28 - 9:33 PM

Bismack Biyombo played 19 minutes with one points, five boards and two blocks against the Bulls on Monday.

Al Jefferson (knee) had some knee soreness, which is his second knee issue this month. The Hornets are not going to tank because they traded for Mo Williams, so it's hard to add Biyombo on the wire unless Jefferson is ruled out. Bizzy Bee doesn't have a big upside anyway.
Mar 23 - 11:28 PM

Bismack Biyombo may have played the best game of his career on Friday against the Bulls, scoring 10 points with 10 boards, one assist and one block in 22 minutes.

It wasn't his best stat line, but his defense was great and he didn't make too many mistakes. Plus, he made all six attempts from the line. Biyombo is likely going to play minutes in the mid-20s for the next couple games, so he's worth a look in deep leagues. Al Jefferson's calf injury doesn't sound too serious, though.
Mar 13 - 10:32 PM

Bismack Biyombo will start for Al Jefferson (leg) on Friday night against the Bulls.

It'll be his 14th start of the season after averaging 6.8 points, 8.2 boards, 1.5 blocks and 0.4 steals in 24.5 minutes per game, With Cody Zeller also out, Biyombo should see minutes in the mid 20s. He's a very risky play in daily leagues due to only having a 12.3 usage rate this season.
