Default Bismack Biyombo has buyout

Quote:
Congo forward Bismack Biyombo was a late invitee to the NBA draft's green room Thursday, which would indicate he could land in the lottery, but according to league sources Biyombo doesn't have a letter of clearance from FIBA and is subject to a buyout.

Biyombo can't sign an NBA contract until this matter is cleared up.

Sources said Biyombo's name was on a list sent out by the NBA Wednesday detailing players who were subject to a buyout. Teams have investigated and concluded that Biyombo would owe 1 million Euros or roughly $1.5 million, possibly equal to his rookie contract, to get out of his deal with Spanish team Fuenlabrada.

Sources said that the buyout figure could be negotiated, but the matter could also end up in court.

Biyombo could be drafted by Toronto at No. 5, which worked him out Monday in New York, or Detroit (No. 8) or Charlotte (No. 9), which have also worked him out recently.

The Raptors love Brandon Knight, but would they take Bismack Biyombo even if Knight is on the board at No. 5? I'm hearing it's a real possibility.

If Knight doesn't go fifth, there's almost no chance he gets past Sacramento at No. 7. If that's the case, then Kemba Walker could be in for that Jimmer-Kemba showdown in Utah at No. 12.

Are you guys really naive enough to think he's going to get drafted solely based on one good game?
