Report: Magic, Bismack Biyombo agree to terms on four-year deal
The Orlando Magic and free agent big man Bismack Biyombo have agreed to terms on a four-year deal, reports Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press.
Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical reports that the contract will be worth $72 million.
The proposed deal will be a major raise for the 23-year-old center, who signed a two-year, $5.7 million contract with the Toronto Raptors before the 2015–16 season.
Biyombo averaged 5.5 points and 8.0 rebounds for the Raptors during the regular season, but was one of the catalysts of the team’s success in the playoffs. He averaged 6.2 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.4 blocks during the playoffs, including a 26-rebound game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Biyombo is the second major addition to the Magic frontcourt, as the team traded for Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka during the draft.
The Magic finished 11th in the Eastern Conference standings last season.
