Bobcats rookie Bismack Biyombo has worked out a settlement with his former Spanish team, allowing the power forward-center to sign with the Charlotte Bobcats.

The team, Fuenlabrada, contended Biyombo had a binding contract, which obligated him to pay a large portion of his worldwide earnings back to them. Biyombo sued the team, claiming breach of contract.

The dispute kept FIBA, basketball's international governing body, from issuing a letter of clearance to the NBA that would allow the Bobcats to sign Biyombo.
