Bismack Biyombo: He blew up in the playoffs, and he certainly will decline his $3 million player option for next season. In a league where going small is emphasized over size, Biyombo is both. He’s 6-9 and is strong enough to play center (listed as a power forward) and has elite shot-blocking ability to protect the rim and he’s agile enough to switch out onto guards on pick-and-rolls. Biyombo’s value, as a result, has skyrocketed despite not being much of an offensive threat outside of garbage putbacks. He’ll cost $15 million to $17 million, one front office exec told CSNmidatlantic.com. That’ll price him out of D.C. as long as Gortat ($12 million per) remains. A big with Biyombo’s skill set as a backup at center, however, is ideal.
