Contract issues could stall Biyombo debut

Forward Bismack Biyombo has a contract issue with his team in Spain that could prevent him from getting immediate clearance to play in the NBA, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Biyombo terminated his contract with Fuenlabrada of the Spanish league in April, but a league source said the team has sued and a court date has been set. There are some doubts about how quickly Biyombo will receive clearance to play in the NBA.

Biyombo, a 6-foot-9 forward from The Congo, was taken seventh by the Sacramento Kings, who will send him to the Charlotte Bobcats as part of the Stephen Jackson trade.
