The 29-year-old was originally the seventh overall selection in the 2011 NBA Draft by Sacramento before being traded to Charlotte on draft night. A native of Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Biyombo played two seasons professionally in Spain before entering the NBA. At the 2011 Nike Hoops Summit, he recorded the first triple-double in the event’s history while playing for the World Select Team.

The winner of the NBA Cares Community Assist Award for March 2022, Biyombo received the honor for his dedication to bettering the conditions and overall livelihoods of individuals and communities in his native Democratic Republic of the Congo. After experiencing the loss of his father in August 2021, Biyombo dedicated the 2021-22 season to him, choosing to wear no. 18 in honor of his father’s birthday.

As part of his intention to honor his father, Biyombo announced in March that he would contribute his entire salary from the 2021-22 season to establish and construct a new hospital in his native country that will improve access to better health care for generations. Last month, Biyombo took a trip to St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican to meet with Pope Francis to discuss humanitarian efforts benefitting Congolese people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
