2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Bismack Biyombo


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-9, 240

School: Congo, 1992


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Strong build for someone his age
  • Physical
  • Length
  • Ridiculous 7-7 wingspan helps him as a shot blocker and rebounder
  • Shows a commitment on the defensive end
  • Crashes the offensive glass
  • Explosive finisher
  • Establishes great position on the block
  • Shows flashes of a developing back-to-the-basket game
  • Brings terrific energy and intensity to the floor
  • Loaded with potential



    Weaknesses:
  • Very raw in his all-around offensive game
  • Uncomfortable handling the ball on the perimeter
  • Long way to go with his jump shot
  • Most of his baskets come on offensive rebounds/easy dunks

    Summary: It is easy to see why Bismack Biyombo's NBA stock has sky-rocketed in the past couple of weeks. For an 18-year-old who is still somewhat new to the game of basketball, his upside is out of this world. He already possesses a man's body and will only get better and better as time goes on. He will certainly be a first-round pick based on potential alone and I would not be shocked if he works his way into the lottery, possibly even the top 10 before it is all said and done.

    Player Comparison: Serge Ibaka. Biyombo's raw ability and athleticism is similar to that of Ibaka, who is also a native of Congo, when he arrived in the NBA. Ibaka has found his niche in the NBA as a rebounder, shot blocker and energy guy as his offensive game continues to develop. Biyombo brings the same elements to the floor, but is more physical at his age than Ibaka. Like the Thunder big man, Biyombo should only get better with time and experience.
