Biyombo signed a two-year, $6 million contract with the Raptors on Saturday, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Following the acquisitions of Spencer Hawes and Fran Kaminsky last month, the Hornets opted not to extend a qualifying offer to Biyombo, making him an unrestricted free agent. Upon joining his new squad, Biyombo will serve as Jonas Valanciunas' primary backup at center and froncourt depth in general. In 64 contests last season, Biyombo average 4.8 points (on 54 percent shooting), 6.4 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks in 19 minutes.

Biyombo will head into free agency after the Hornets failed to extend a qualifying offer Monday, Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Biyombo averaged 19 minutes on the court during his 64 appearances last season but the Hornets acquired Spencer Hawes and rookie Frank Kaminsky this offseason, leaving little room for Biyombo when considering that Al Jefferson and Cody Zeller will likely begin the season as starters. Regardless of where Biyombo ends up, he'll likely have a role off the bench and should struggle for relevancy in standard leagues this upcoming season.

Biyombo had a decent run as a starter when Al Jefferson went down, but with the recent acquisitions of Frank Kaminsky and Spencer Hawes, and Al Jefferson opting in to the final year of his contract, his opportunities for minutes may be limited.

Biyombo averaged 1.5 blocks per game last season, but that's his only real fantasy strength, and his lack of offensive game limits his court time. Biyombo will be reduced to a defensive specialist role most likely with the recent moves and can be ignored in all but the deepest fantasy leagues.

Biyombo was limited in his appearances on the floor in his fourth NBA season, but showed signs of promise when opportunities presented themselves. Despite playing the majority of the season as Al Jefferson's backup, Biyombo put together averages of 4.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 64 games played. A variety of injuries left Biyombo out of 18 games this season, but none were ever serious enough to keep him out for an extended amount of time or have lasting impacts on his future.

Biyombo is still working to refine his offensive game, which is hardly existent at this point, but defensively, Biyombo is proving to be one of the better shot blockers in the league. While his season average of 1.5 blocks per game may not jump off the paper, he did manage to record three-plus blocks in 12 games this year with a season-high of six back in November. Biyombo also proved to be an effective rebounder, posting 10-plus rebounds in 14 games this season. Biyombo was at his most effective when Jefferson was out of the lineup. In the 21 games where Jefferson was either out or coming off the bench because of injuries, Biyombo was in the starting lineup and put together averages of 6.8 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.8 blocks over 27 minutes. For Biyombo, unless the Hornets decided to extend him his qualifying offer of roughly $5.5 million, he will enter this offseason as a restricted free agent. Should Charlotte take him back, he will likely serve yet again as Jefferson's backup, as he still has not proven himself to be consistent enough to be a starting center in this league. If he wishes to prove that, a more refined offensive game must be had.

Biyombo just missed a double-double in 30 minutes Monday against the Rockets as he scored nine points (3-4 FG, 3-6 FT) to go along with 13 rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks.

Biyombo is a blocking machine as he has not only recorded at least one block in each of his last 11 games, but he had at least three blocks in seven of those games. He's not going to provide a lot on the offensive end, but his rebounding and defensive contributions should not be ignored.
