Bismack Biyombo Had to Pay $1.5 Million for Right to Join Bobcats

At long last, Bismack Biyombo’s dream of playing in the NBA has come true, but it’ll cost the 19-year old big fella a lot of money. Per the AP: “Forward Bismack Biyombo is free to join the Charlotte Bobcats after agreeing to pay the buyout clause to release him from his contract with Spanish club Fuenlabrada. Fuenlabrada said Monday that Biyombo had agreed to pay the $1.5 million clause that will free him from the remaining two years of his contract. Biyombo, the seventh pick in this year’s NBA draft, had sought to avoid paying the fee, but his civil suit against the team was dismissed by a Spanish court late last week.”

    Good for the Bobcats, they get to find out sooner rather than later whether he’s a bust or not.

    Oh WOWW, I didn’t think anyone would want to pay that large sum to get out of a contract.

    @niQ JC Navarro paid around 3 millions to Barcelona, Rudy Fernandez and Rubio had problems with it too and Pau Gasol had to sign that if he came back to Europe to play, whenever that is, if it is at all, he has to return to play with Barcelona.
