Shams Charania of the Athletic is reporting that Bismack Biyombo has exercised his $17M player option to return to the Hornets for the 2019-20 season.
This was obviously a no-brainer for the Congolese center who signed his current deal with the Magic back in 2016. Biyombo was the occasional backup in Charlotte this year and increased his playing time only when Cody Zeller got injured late into the season. He is a rebounds and blocks specialist with good percentages but doesn’t offer much upside.
