After significantly strengthening their external sector by
surpayant offering Gordon Hayward for 4 years and 120 million, the Hornets should now be interested in the big ones to garnish a very deserted racket. Because Cody Zeller is funny but 5 minutes, with all due respect.
James Wiseman already selected by the Warriors in the Draft and most of the pivots having already found takers, the solution was finally found internally in Charlotte, since it is the former pivot of the Raptors and Magic Bismack Biyombo who initials a new contract with the Hornets. As Stéphane Guy would say: it’s not Hassan Whiteside, it’s not Christian Wood, it’s not Harry Giles, it’s not Tristan Thompson, but it is therefore Bismack Biyombo who therefore remains in the franchise of Michael Jordan.
Free agent center Bismack Biyombo has reached an agreement with the Charlotte Hornets, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

The details of the contract have not yet filtered, whether for the duration or for the amount, but we imagine that this contract will not be of the order of the one of 72 million dollars over 4 years which was offered to him by this genius of Rob Hennigan in the summer of 2016. Well at least, the Hornets do not find themselves completely without anything inside by re-signing the Congolese pivot, which will bring defense and rebound in spades. But it remains however very light to hope to play elbows seriously against the contenders of the East under the panels.
Charlotte needed a pivot, Charlotte had her pivot. Not the best they could find, eh, but at least they secured a minimum of presence inside. Perfect for playing twelfth place in the East .. at best?
