The Oklahoma City Thunder have signed center Bismack Biyombo to a minimum deal, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
The move gives the young Thunder another much-needed veteran presence and additional frontcourt depth as they prepare for a playoff push this season. OKC currently has a 35-17 record, good for fourth-best in the Western Conference.
Biyombo, 31, played 30 games for the Memphis Grizzlies this season before getting waived. He averaged 5.2 points and 6.4 rebounds, and he is expected to shore up a Thunder frontline that only features Rookie-of-the-Year candidate Chet Holmgren and second-year big man Jaylin Williams.
