Haven't there been talks that he's actually much older than there saying?. Think I read that anyways. Maybe not.

Would love us to trade up for him. Was he shooting free throws one handed? JO and KG could work miracles with him

The knicks have Melo, Amare, and then Billups eating up all of their shots.

Toney douglas and Landry will also make improvements and be able to shoot better next year. The Knicks ideally need a guy who can rip rebounds and protect the paint, ideally as a Center to play next to Amare, or worst case a PF and move Amare to Center.

Any clue as to how old he really is? I know there was a lot of speculation in the us vs the world camp or whatever that was. People were saying he was well into his mid 20's.

The one thing that continues to dog Biyombo are the question marks NBA teams have about his age. Recently converted NBA draft analyst David Aldridge wrote that an NBA GM he spoke with said he had heard rumors that Biyombo was “anywhere from 23 to 26.”

Our research has revealed some slightly different information. Coaches who have worked with Biyombo earlier in his career while he was still in Congo think he's “no older than 20 at most,” while Biyombo's agent, Igor Crespo, has evidence that proves Biyombo is even younger.

Crespo says he took Biyombo to a specialist to conduct a bone age study immediately upon his arrival in Spain (Biyombo was reportedly 16). The study, as explained here involves taking x-rays of an adolescent's wrist and hand to see if his growth plates are still open. Because the cartilage in Biyombo's hand hadn't fused at that point, the specialist came to the conclusion that he could be 16 or 17 at most, but not 18, when growth plates are expected to be closed.

This obviously rules out the possibility of Biyombo being five to eight years older than he's listed, as the wild speculation we've seen recently on the Internet indicates. Crespo says he will willingly share these x-rays with any NBA team that requests them. One team we spoke with has already begun to evaluate the x-rays.
