He is best remembered best for stepping up after Raptors starter Jonas Valančiūnas bowed out of the playoffs in the second round with a ankle injury.
And that perhaps is the last memory we will have of Bismack Biyombo in a Raptors Uniform.
Bismack Biyombo to Sign Deal with Orlando, According to Reports
Biyombo’s stock rose during the Rap’s postseason, averaging 6.2 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game and picking up the slack after Valančiūnas left the court due to injury.
Biyombo signed with the Raptors in July of 2015 after his previous club the Charlotte Hornets decided not to extend a qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent.
He started in 18 straight games between mid-November and late December while Jonas Valančiūnas was recovering from a fractured hand.
In Game 7 of the Raptors’ second round series with the Miami Heat, Biyombo recorded 17 points and 16 rebounds in a 116–89 win, helping the Raptors advance to the conference finals for the first time in franchise history.
