Biyombo says current contract buyout a non-issue

In the run-up to the draft, there were a lot of questions about Bismack Biyombo’s buyout from his Spanish club, and if that was going to happen (or was going to be decided by the Spanish courts).

In meeting with the Charlotte Bobcat media on Friday, Biyombo said that the buyout was not going to be an issue and he would be with the Bobcats next season (whenever that starts), according to Mike Cranston of the Associated Press.

The Bobcats had better hope so, they traded away Stephen Jackson to get in front of the Pistons and take him. It was a real high risk/high reward move by new Bobcats GM Rich Cho. And it will be three years or so before we know if it really paid off.

    It wasn’t a high risk/reward for the Bobcats. What’s the risk? That we lose Stephen Jackson and probably win exactly as many games as we did with him? This team was spending too much money on guys that weren’t getting us into the playoffs. I love Gerald Wallace and wish we didn’t trade him, but this move only makes sense. Jordan finally won a trade!
