Together, Biyombo and Carroll – who agreed to a four-year, $64 million deal – are expected to play a part in reshaping the Raptors’ defense next season."

The market for Centers has been weak this offseason. Robin Lopez and DeAndre Jordan have signed with new teams, leaving other teams scrambling for whatever remaining big men are left to snag.

Biyombo and averaged 4.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocked shots in 19.4 minutes per game for the Hornets last season.

The Raptors were 23th in team blocks (4.4 blocks per game). Biyombo will fit in nice with a Raptors team that doesn’t need his scoring– just his defensive presence.
