As more players continue to get an opportunity across the NBA, Bismack Biyombo recently signed a 10-day contract with the Phoenix Suns. One of the best teams in the league, they needed an experienced big that could temporarily give quality minutes.
In his first outing with the Suns, Biyombo produced 11 points and six boards in just 18 minutes of action. A 29-year-old veteran, he’s got over 700 games of NBA experience under his belt and could be a quality part of the rotation in Phoenix over the next week or so.
While it’s unclear whether the Suns would have any interest in trying to keep Biyombo around longer term, he’s certainly made a splash with the opportunity he’s been given.
In his career, the 6-foot-8 big never emerged as any sort of 3-point shooter, but is known for being a solid rebounder and efficient scorer. In a limited role, he’s always been a player that fits nicely on any team.
In the coming weeks. Biyombo and many other players across the league will continue to get chances to shine on their respective teams as they earn 10-day contracts. He’s averaged 5.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game on his career while shooting 52.7% from the floor.
