The 29-year-old has not got a contract at this moment. Last 10 years Biyombo spent in the NBA, representing Charlotte Hornets (2011-15, 2018-21), Toronto Raptors (2015-16), and Orlando Magic (2016-18). Before moving across the Atlantic, he played in Spain.

Last season the 2.06-meter center averaged 4.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.2 assists over 67 games with Charlotte.

The 7th overall pick of the 2011 NBA Draft has career averages of 5.1 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 0.6 assists in the strongest basketball league.

The Basques are struggling at the start of the 2021-22 campaign. Yesterday, the team coached by Dusko Ivanovic lost to Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas (77-83) in Liga ACB. It was the seventh Baskonia’s defeat in the last eight games, including all competitions.

Baskonia have already made roster changes. They signed guard Lamar Peters, who arrived at Vitoria, after his time with Frutti Extra Bursaspor.

Moreover, the Basques are lacking Alec Peters who will remain sidelined for at least two more months due to a back injury.
