The Reggie comparison is interesting. Reggie's rebounding helped the Raptors compete on
the boards and get more second-changes, but I don't think he made them any more competitive. Two big issues for Reggie: 1) He is not particularly good on defense, 2) His offense is so bad that you're playing 4 vs 5.

Biyombo would be slightly different in that he is a strong rebounder and a good defender. In particular, he's a good weak-side defender, which is where the Raptors have been exceptionally weak.
