Bismack Biyombo To Visit Pistons, Knicks Ahead Of NBA Draft, According To Report

ESPN's Chad Ford reports that in the wake of Bismack Biyombo's disappointing workout in front of most NBA team at adidas Eurocamp last weekend, the Congolese prospect will visit the United States to meet with and work out for select teams before Thursday's 2011 NBA Draft. The Detroit Pistons (No. 8) and New York Knicks (No. 17) are the teams Biyombo's camp has reportedly reached out to.

The reviews of Biyombo's workout Saturday in Treviso, Italy, were poor, as his trainers had him attempt to show that his flawed offense was getting better. It apparently wasn't, and Biyombo missed most shots he took. He's considered a Ben Wallace type, an athletic, physically gifted livewire who will make his biggest impact on defense and the glass. He played in Spain's top league this season, just a year after starring in the far-from-renowned Yemeni league.

It's unclear whether Biyombo will visit any other teams in the lottery in his stateside tour.
