Biyombo, 29, is 6-foot-8 and was initially signed to a 10-day deal on Jan. 1. His performance helped Phoenix overcome the loss of starting center Deandre Ayton and backup JaVale McGee, both in health and safety protocols at the time of Biyombo’s signing. He eventually was signed for the remainder of the season.
The No. 7 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, he has also spent time with the Hornets, Magic and Raptors.
“He is among a large group of players who received NBA opportunities under the hardship provision as a result of a COVID-19 outbreak over the past month,” wrote Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors at the time. “The Suns needed immediate help in the middle with Frank Kaminsky and Dario Saric sidelined as well by long-term injuries.”
