Bobcats rookie Bismack Biyombo in battle with overseas team over contract
 
As of now, he's still under contract with his overseas team.

He's got one of the best names of the first round. I want him in the NBA just so I get to say his name a lot.

According to most reports I've read from reporters here in the Carolinas we're expecting him to suit up as a Bobcat this year. Hopefully that ends up being the case, I think this kid can be a beast defensively.

Was he under contract with the Bobcats?

Not yet because he was a rookie and they haven't been able to sign any rookies because of the lockout. I'm gonna love this guy though.

That will make it interesting. Without an NBA contract in hand he's not protected like Deron Williams or one of the others that went to Europe to play ball and actually could raise questions as far as the Bobcats could be violating the FIBA NBA agreement if they were to offer him one.

Hopefully calm heads will prevail but clearly his current contract holder isn't thinking along those lines. They want that buyout!

Is his future at center or power forward?

Yeah, I'm eager to see this guy play in Charlotte. He looks great defensively from videos I've seen but that wasn't against NBA talent level players.
