“I always say it’s not a retirement ceremony when I’m going there,” Biyombo said. “I’m going there to try and get a win and play for my teammates and help these guys do better. I can talk as much as I want about going back to Charlotte. But one thing is that I’m thankful that they gave me an opportunity to be a part of the NBA.” In 2011, back when they were known as the Charlotte Bobcats, the Hornets acquired Biyombo in a three-team, draft-night trade after the Sacramento Kings selected him seventh overall. Biyombo spent the next four seasons with Charlotte, appearing in a total of 284 regular-season games and three postseason games.
