Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - The Charlotte Bobcats have exercised the
third-year contract options on forward Bismack Biyombo and guard Kemba Walker,
the team announced on Friday.
Biyombo was selected seventh overall in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Sacramento
Kings before a three-team trade sent the Congo native to Charlotte, where he
averaged 5.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks over 63 games -- including 41
starts -- during his rookie campaign.
Walker, who the Bobcats selected two picks later, appeared in 66 games as a
rookie last season and averaged 12.2 points, 4.4 assists and 3.5 rebounds.
