Reports have said the Knicks are excelling interest in power forward/center Bismack Biyombo also known as the “B-Smack”.
.
Biyombo will work out with the Knicks on Sunday following a workout in Toronto, and Detroit Monday. This means that the big-man center could land as early as 5th pick to the Raptors.
.
Bismack Biyombo is a without a doubt is a strong,athletic,explosive beast as he is compared to a worse version of NBA center Dwight Howard. There was even some whispers that Biyombo was in the age group of 23-26, that’s how developed he really is.
.
Bismack Biyombo is a beguiling prospect. So why would the Knicks seek interest in him?.
.
Bismack Biyombo is a vicious, defensive, and energetic center. It sounds like the perfect fit for the Knicks. In the Spanish ACB league, Biyombo was a true star. Biyombo even set a record there recording 12 points 11 rebounds and 10 blocks. That’s right ten blocks in one game.
.
Who will the Knicks be willing to deal for Bismack Biyombo?
.
The Knicks will seek to trade their own draft pick and a player( no one was mentioned yet, though Landry Fields could be a possible name as he was in a deep struggle in the second half of the season). Toney Douglas coming out of his sophomore year, could be a possibility.
.
What’s the Knicks plan how late can they get him?
.
He will most likely be in the range of 5th pick to 11th pick, unless he completely messes up in workouts and brings himself down, out of the lottery. Though that is unlikely and if the Knicks are greatly considering the 6″9′ center it’s doubtful they would rely on a chance like that.
.
What will be his role in the rotation?
.
He will most likely be the starting center in the lineup, unless a change of his current status. He is an excellent ball-handler, shooter, and defender and could probably fill in an empty spot next to Amar’e Stoudemire.
.
If the Knicks aren’t successful on receiving him and they traded up for the draft pick already what’s the deal?
.
Tristan Thompson, and Donatas Motiejunas are always backup plans. Yes, they aren’t listed as centers but at their heights it is likely they can fit in as a center. Or there is a possibility the Knicks can go for a point guard possibly Kemba Walker can be an option.
.
Knicks fans start becoming excited because B-Smack can soon be a Knickerbocker.
